Sammy Nyokaye 5th in a hot humid Kisumu marathon today.
Sammy ran 2.19:48 for a 5th place in the hot conditions. The winner had 2:16:50.
Sammy was up in the leading group with 3 other runners at 38 km . Unfortunately he got stitches
in the chest and had to slow down his pace. He felt very strong at that moment before the stitches and he belived he had won the race if not this had happened.
When he will get a chance in a big marathon in Europe next time in good weather conditions I think we will see a very good performance. We are chasing sub 2:10 together. That`s our main target.
