Helalia Johannnes took home a bronze medal in the highly contested women’s marathon at the World Athletics Championships held in Doha, Qatar that saw close to 70 women partaking.
The 23-year-old Ruth Chepngetich took gold with a time of 2:32:43, the slowest time to ever win the championships in a race that saw nearly a third of the 70 starters – 28 out of 68 – fail to reach the finish line.
Defending world champion Rose Chelimo, 39, settled for silver crossing the line more than a minute later with a time of 2:33.46.
Namibia’s Commonwealth champion, Helalia Johannes, took the bronze clocking a time of 2:34.15.
