Rio de Janeiro (dpa) - Jemima Sumgong pulled away from Bahrain‘s Eunice Kirwa on the last kilometre to become the first Olympic women‘s marathon champion from Kenya on Saturday.

The London Marathon winner from April triumphed in 2 hours 24 minutes 4 seconds in the Sambadrome venue on a sunny and hot morning.

Kenya-born Kirwa trailed by nine seconds at the finish for silver. The reigning world champion Mare Dibaba of Ethiopia took bronze, 26 seconds off the pace.

The three came from a final bigger leader group of seven which was broken late in the classic 42.195-kilometre distance through the streets of Rio in a race which also featured the Estonian Luik triplets as well as twins from Germany and North Korea.
