Marathon world-record holder Eliud Kipchoge has won the NN Mission Marathon at the Twente Airport in the Netherlands.
The Olympic champion clocked an impressive 2 hours, 4 minutes and 30 seconds in the 40km race to get back to winning ways.
Kipchoge who finished 8th at the London marathon at the start of the year, the last marathon he took part before the Sunday’s, used the NN Mission Marathon as preparations to defend the Olympic marathon title.
Kipchoge’s friend and training mate, Jonathan Korir finished second in 2 hours, six minutes and 40 seconds.
The NN Mission Marathon was initially set for Hamburg in Germany but was moved to Enschede in the Netherlands following the third wave of covid-19.
