2016 Tokyo Marathon Recap: Feyisa Lilesa (2:06:56) Wins, Denies Dickson Chumba Share

Chumba and Lilesa traded blows for the next 10 kilometers, each moving to the front at different times but never gaining more than a step or two on the other. It looked as if we might be in store for a battle all the way to the finish line, but with a mile to go, Chumba finally broke. Though Lilesa quickly put a ton of ground on Chumba, he wasn’t accelerating (it took Lilesa 4:00 to cover the distance from 41k to the finish — that’s 5:23/mile pace). Chumba was simply out of gas, and as Lilesa coasted to victory — he began flexing in celebration a kilometer from the finish line — Chumba couldn’t even hold on for second as countryman Bernard Kipyego beat him out for second just before the line, 2:07:33 to 2:07:34.
