Ethiopian Deso Gelmisa won the 45th edition of the Paris marathon on Sunday, ahead of his compatriot Seifu Tura, second by three seconds, and Frenchman Morhad Amdouni, third by setting a new French record. “I am very happy”, reacted soberly Gelmisa, winner at the end of the 42.195 km with a time of 2 h 05 min 07 sec, ahead of Tura (2 h 05 min 10 sec), who had won the Chicago marathon in 2021, and Amdouni (2 h 05 min 22 sec).

A new record for the women’s event

Under the Parisian sun, the Kenyan Judith Jeptum also broke a record by dominating the women’s event. With a time of 2 h 19 min 48 sec, Jeptum improved by more than a minute the previous record for the event (2 h 20 min 55 sec) which had been established in 2017 by another Kenyan, Purity Rionoripo.

Jeptum beat two Ethiopians, Fanti Jimma, 2nd (2 h 22 min 52 sec), and Besu Sado, 3rd (2 h 23 min 16 sec). The 26-year-old Kenyan was one of the favorites for this 45th edition and had notably won the Abu Dhabi marathon in 2021.
