This was her sixth consecutive record-breaking win in the Grand Prix series, in addition to the many world titles that she holds. 

Gerda Steyn came in second in a time of 34:28 minutes, while last year’s Joburg winner, Irvette van Zyl took third place in 34:40.

Johannes was quoted in recent media reports expressing satisfaction about the event and her road to recover. 

“I prepared very well for the marathon and I think that I was able to do well here because I really am super fit. I am very happy to have won again,” she added.
