Moses Njodzi, shocked thousands other athletes taking part in the race, as he led them from the starting line to finish, completing the race at 3:06:50 hours.
After a job well done, Njodzi was over the moon: “I was going for a record. I trained hard to win this race. This is my biggest win! I am very happy”.
Up to the 42-kilometre peg, Njodzi enjoyed the company of Kaserai Sita, another Zimbabwean who was determined to come first. This was until a threat that came from South African Graham Malinga, who terrorised the two boys until Sita gave up the lead.
On the other side, Njodzi brushed aside the obviously spent Malinga giving him a knock that forced him to literally walk for some minutes before gaining his strength.
Honest Mutsakani, who all along kept himself within the leading 10 athletes, took advantage of his fading competitors and positioned himself behind Njodzi, crossing the final line just 2 minutes 36seconds after him.
Kaserai finished the race in ninth position, together with six other South African athletes and a Malawian who were also within the top 10. – CAJ News.
