The 2018 European 10,000m Champion Morhad Amdouni won the 20km de Paris that was held on Sunday (10) in Paris, France.
The 33 year-old will be remembered for deliberately knocking water bottles from a table during the men’s marathon at the Tokyo Olympic which he came out and denied.
During the Tokyo marathon at around the 28km mark, the Frenchman – who was running with the leading pack – knocked numerous bottles from a hydration station, meaning some athletes behind him were unable to pick one up. Temperatures during the marathon approached 30 degrees Celsius.
Amdouni fought off for the honors with Josphat Kiprono Menjo whom he managed to beat almost at the tape to cut it in 57:54 with menjo crossing the line three seconds later.
Bernard Kipkorir Koros also from Kenya closed the podium three first finishes in 59:22.
- Morhad Amdouni (FRA) 57:54
