Gold For Ethiopia's Gelana In Women's Marathon
In what looks to be a new Olympics record, Tiki Gelana of Ethiopia just won the women's marathon in a time of 2:23.07.
Kenya's Priscah Jeptoo was second and Russia's Tatyana Petrova Arkhipova finished third.
As The Guardian notes, Gelana's "uncle Gezahegne Abera won men's marathon gold in Sydney 12 years ago."
Mary Keitany of Kenya, one of the pre-race favorites, came in fourth.
The previous women's Olympics record was 2:23.14.
