Ezekiel Mutai smashes the Montreal Marathon course record

Kenya’s Ezekiel Kimeli Mutai took top honors at the 28th edition of the Montreal Marathon that was held on Sunday (23) in Montreal, Canada.

The 25 year-old who came with a personal best of 2:11.16 that he got early this year at Madrid Marathon improved on this time as he faced his fellow Kenyan Wycliffe Biwott who could not match his pace.

Mutai raced as a lone ranger from the 35km mark to smash the race course record of 2:13.45 that was set in 2011 by fellow country-mate, Julius Kirwa Choge with a new course record of 2:11.05.

He was followed by Biwott four minutes later with Rwanda’s Jean-Marie Vianney-Uwajeneza closing the podium three finishes in 2:18.10.
