Ethiopia's Tilahun Regassa wins Rotterdam Marathon
Ethiopia's Tilahun Regassa won the Rotterdam marathon on Sunday in a time of 2hr 05min and 37sec for the 23-year-old's first marathon victory.
Regassa's time was more than a minute below the record in the Dutch port city of 2:04:27, set in 2009 by Kenya's Duncan Kibet Kirong.
Ethiopia's Getu Feleke finished the 33rd Rotterdam marathon second, as he did in 2012, with a time of 2:06:46.
Kenya's Sammy Kitwara came third with a time of 2:07:22.
Winner Regassa made his marathon debut in Chicago last October.
Tilahun is an upcoming star and he is going to dominate the world scene in the coming years.
Before you know it Ethiopians will dominate most of the city marathons internationally (Toronto, Vancouver, boston, Rotterdam, lodnon) just to list some of the places we have already won!
Go Ethiopia and thank you nazret
