Copenhagen Half Marathon could on Sunday boast a record-breaking depth as 15 runners finished the race faster than one hour. In both the men's and women’s races, Ethiopia triumphed with a double victory. Last year’s winner, Amedework Walelegn, was eager to repeat his victory but had to settle for the second spot in 59:05 minutes – seven seconds after his compatriot Milkesa Mengesha, who won in 58:58 cutting 50 seconds off his previous personal best set in Lisboa last year.

“I am not surprised with my victory today. It was a good competition and a great crowd, and I always perform well in Denmark,” the 22-year-old Mengesha said after the race with reference to his gold medal from the World U20 Cross Championships in Aarhus three years ago.

In the women’s race, Tsige Gebreselema seemed for a long time to be able to break the race record of 65:08 set last year, but the Ethiopian couldn’t keep the high speed in the last phase and was in the end beaten by Tadu Teshome who won in a personal best of 66:13 minutes.

“I really felt good today and am very happy with my performance. My next goal is Valencia Marathon in December where I hope to run 2:18-2:19,” Teshome said.
