Kenya’s Sandrafelis Chebet Tuei took the top honors at the 96th edition of the Sao Silvestre de Sao Paulo race that was held on Friday (31) the biggest urban race in Latin America.
The 23 years-old opened an insurmountable distance, as they covered practically the 15 kilometers of the race with Ethiopian Yenenesh Dinkesa. The two starred in the main duel at the start of the race, with great distance from the rest of the runners, but in the middle of the circuit the Kenyan proved to be unbeatable.
She took off like a lightening speed to cutting the tape in 50:06 with Dinkesa coming home in second place.
Brazilian runners Jenifer dos Nascimento, Valdilene dos Santos Silva and FRancieli dos Santos Moura, crossed the line in third, fourth and fifth, respectively.
