Kenneth Mung’ara wins Hong Kong Marathon 

Kenyan athlete Kenneth Mung’ara beat opponents half his age as he cruised to victory at the Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon on Sunday, winning in a time of 2:13:39.

The forty-year-old Mung’ara, winner of the Standard Chartered Nairobi Marathon in 2013, is expected to lead the Kenyan team at the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia in April.

The men’s contest was a different story to the women’s contest as a large lead pack of about a dozen men ran together for almost the entire distance.With the first 10 kilometres being covered in 32:30 and half way reached in 1:07:47, it was clear that the course record of 2:10:31, set last year by Belachew Melaku, wasn’t under threat.
