Bruna Genovese of Italy came from behind to win the Tokyo Womens Marathon this
morning, Sunday (21 Nov). Genovese, who was 51 seconds behind at 35 km, passed
the leader Ethiopian Elfenesh Alemu at 40.7 km to win with 2:26:34.
Perhaps it is becoming the ‘Italian way’ to win major marathons,
for Stefano Baldini in this summer’s Athens Olympics and Gelindo Bordin
in the 1988 Olympic Games in Seoul, came from behind for famous wins too.
