Edna Kiplagat (Nike) – one of four finalists
Many thanks to Victor Sailer of PhotoRun, best cameraman in the sport, for providing pics of Edna Kiplagat (Nike) winning today’s EDP Lisbon Half-Marathon, along with Irvette van Zyl (adidas) in 10th, Paula Todoran (adidas) in 17th, and Ionela Dinca in 18th.

Edna Kiplagat (Nike) bounced back from her Olympic disappointment with a massive PB of 67:41 at this morning’s Great North Run half-marathon, finishing second to Tirunesh Dibaba’s 67:35. Edna crushed her former PB by 1:19 while going on-on-one with Olympic 5/10 champion Dibaba over the final few hundred meters.
And Freya Murray (adidas) made it three-for-three for our trio of Olympic marathoners today, running a PB also, with 72:23 for 9th place, very impressive in the midst of her wedding planning!
