The women’s field for the Commerzbank Frankfurt
Marathon on October 25 has considerably grown in strength with the
addition of the Kenya’s Agnes Kiprop and Ethiopia’s Firehiwot Dado,
both winners of big spring marathons this year. While Kiprop took the
Turin Marathon Firehiwot won in Rome.
The Commerzbank Frankfurt Marathon, which boosts a new title sponsor, is an IAAF Gold Label Road Race.
the depth of the elite field assembled so far the women’s race will
have the best quality ever in the history of the event. And it is
expected that there will be further additions to both the women’s and
men’s event soon.
Firehiwot clocked a personal best in the
Marathon this year as well. When she won the Rome Marathon in March she
achieved a massive improvement from a previous personal best of 2:37:34
to a fine 2:27:08. She will also be aiming to further improve on the
fast Frankfurt course. The 25-year-old has not raced since her surprise
win in Rome and has fully concentrated on preparing well for her autumn
Kiprop comes to the Commerzbank Frankfurt Marathon
unbeaten this year. The 29-year-old Kenyan has won her two major races
in 2009 and produced personal bests in both. First she took the Turin
Marathon in spring with a fine 2:26:22 and five weeks before her race
in Frankfurt she also won the Turin Half Marathon. There she ran
Besides Kiprop and Firehiwot three more runners have
been added to the women’s field: Irene Limika (Kenya), Shitaye Gemechu
(Ethiopia) as well as Germany’s Luminita Zaituc.
her marathon debut in Frankfurt in 2008 and had done well, finishing
fourth in 2:28:31, still her personal best. This year she was second at
the Nagano Marathon in 2:30:00. Shitaye is an experienced marathon
runner, who improved her personal best by five seconds in 2008 when she
placed fourth at the Paris Marathon with 2:26:10. This year she was
fifth at the Tokyo Marathon. Luminita Zaituc is still the fourth
fastest German woman marathoner ever. She clocked 2:26:01 when winning
the Frankfurt Marathon in 2001.
Kenyans Rose Cheruiyot and Ruth
Wanjiru had been signed earlier for the race. In 2008 the 33-year-old
Cheruiyot was fourth in the Dubai Marathon with a personal best of
2:25:48. Later in the year she placed fourth again in Berlin. The
27-year-old Wanjiru was seventh in Osaka this year and has a personal
best of 2:27:38.
At the 28th edition of Germany’s oldest city Marathon organizers expect a record entry of up to 13,000 runners. (IAAF)
Haile Gebrselassie's goal is obvious. He intends to break his world record again. If he succeeds it will be the third time in a row that he would establish a new world best at the real, Berlin Marathon. So far the 36 year-old has broken an amazing 26 world records during his career.
Haile thinks that he can at least slice off another 30 seconds from his present marathon record. "If everything fits together perfectly then may be even 2:02:59 would be possible," he says, who is going for a record fourth consecutive victory at the real, Berlin-Marathon.
No one could have imagined that the Berlin Marathon would become one of the most spectacular sports events in Germany when the race was started for the first time 35 years ago.
This Sunday athletics fans could well see another thrilling race: defending champion and world record holder Haile will be up against Kenya's Duncan Kibet, who leads the current world season's list.
In the women’s race Ethiopian Askale Tafa is regarded as the favorite after her second place in Berlin in 2008. Askale’s strongest rival probably will be a fellow Ethiopian.
So far three men runners have achieved times of sub 2:04:30 in the marathon, according to IAAF. Two of them will be at the start on Sunday. World record holder Haile will line up as the defending champion in this race. He improved his own personal best to 2:03:59 last year. His strongest competitors will be Duncan Kibet with 2:04:27.
For more than two years Haile has not competed against an athlete as strong as Duncan Kibet in the marathon. This could well become a fascinating duel. "I feel honored to be able to run against Haile Gebrselassie," said Duncan Kibet during Thursday's press conference in Berlin. “My training went very well and I think it is a very good sign that my training partner James Kwambai ran 59:09 minutes last Sunday at the Rotterdam Half Marathon." Duncan Kibet did not want to comment on a possible world record attack, but said that he intends to break his personal best. For this he must of course run in the region of the world record. "After Rotterdam I though that I might be able to run even faster in Berlin. So this is why I decided to go for this race."
Looking ahead to a duel with Haile the Kenyan record holder said, "I don't know about Haile's training. And he does not know about my training. So we will have to wait and see how it develops. But I will try to run his pace."
So it could well be a top-class competition for victory in the men’s race. The 36-year old Haile will once again be chasing superlatives at the 36th edition of the marathon in the German capital: for the third consecutive time he wants to set a world record. In 2007, he had crossed the line in 2:04:26, and then he was 27 seconds faster in 2008. Already after last year’s race Berlin crowd favorite Haile had said that he thinks an improvement of at least half a minute is possible for him. Another Berlin victory would also be his fourth in a row at this race. This would be another record as no other runner has ever won Germany’s most spectacular road race more than three times.
But on Sunday, it will probably be Haile’s hardest marathon race in Berlin so far. When Paul Tergat was there in May for the 25k race and was asked in an interview who of his fellow Kenyans might be able to break Haile’s world record he named four: Olympic Champion Sammy Wanjiru, Martin Lel, James Kwambai and Duncan Kibet.
The 31-year-old Kibet has come as close as anyone else to Haile’s world record when he took the Rotterdam Marathon in a Kenyan record of 2:04:27 this April. So Kibet might also be able to run sub 2:04 in Berlin if conditions are good, reports indicate that he is in top form and many must hope a fast non-tactical duel with Haile develops.
ImageThere are two more Kenyans and one Ethiopian in the race, who want to take advantage of the Berlin course, which is renowned for producing super fast times. Francis Kiprop came fourth at the Seoul Marathon in 2008 in 2:08:30 and Mariko Kiplagat (both Kenya) had taken fourth at last year’s race in Berlin in 2:09:04. Coming third in Dubai this year was the Ethiopian Eshetu Wondimu, who was able to improve to 2:08:41 there despite bad weather conditions.
The strongest non-African runner could be Atsushi Fujita (Japan) who has a personal best of 2:06:51. This however is already nine years old. A debutant to be watched is Cuthbert Nyasango (Zimbabwe), who had been 10th at the IAAF World Half Marathon Championships in 2007 with a personal best of 60:26 minutes, IAAF said
Askale Tafa will be the favorite in the women’s race on Sunday. A year ago, the 24-year old Ethiopian finished second behind Irina Mikitenko (Germany) clocking a great personal best of 2:21:31. With that she remained the second fastest woman worldwide in 2008.
Now Askale returns to Berlin and will be eager to further improve. She may well be able to establish a world season’s best, which currently stands at 2:22:11. Irina Mikitenko clocked this time when winning in London in April. But the 2:20 barrier could be Askale’s main goal on Sunday. Last year she had made the mistake to start the race far too fast for which she paid in the final stages.
Askale’s strongest rival probably will be a fellow Ethiopian: Atsede Habtamu clocked 2:25:17 in torrential rain in January’s Dubai Marathon, where the 21 year-old took second place. So it could well be an Ethiopian battle for victory, which will be rewarded with a 50,000 euro first prize.
And there is a third Ethiopian to be watched on Sunday: the 23 year-old Genet Getaneh will also be in with a chance. The 23-year-old Ethiopian finished fifth in 2:26:37 at the Dubai Marathon this year.
The strongest Kenyan should be Leah Malot. She has a very good long distance track record and improved to 2:30:29 at the Paris Marathon this April. Silvia Skvortsova (Russia/PB: 2:27:07), Rosaria Console (Italy/2:27:48) or Britain’s Hayley Haining (2:29:18) could be the fastest non-Africans in the field.
