Ethiopia’s Shura Kitata Wins 2020 London Marathon

Ethiopia’s Shura Kitata has won the men’s 2020 London Marathon.

He finished the race in 2:05:41. Another Ethiopian, Sisay Lemma, was third.

Ethiopia’s Kenenisa Bekele missed the London Marathon because of calf injury last Friday.

Shura told BBC that “Kenenisa Bekele was helping me for this race and he advised me how to run. I trained for the same course, I am very happy to win the race.”

Prime Minister Dr Abiy Ahmed congratulated Shura on his win.
