For the first time in history, a men’s and women’s victory ceremony happens together at a Summer Olympic Games. The medallists of the marathon are presented with their medals! Congratulations to all!
Kenya takes the double in the marathon, with Eliud Kipchoge earning his second consecutive Olympic gold in the event, while Peres Jepchirchir delivered a spectacular finish to win the women’s gold.
Cool for marathon winners, who would typically run the final leg of the race into the Olympic stadium, receive their medals at the closing ceremony.
What people are saying?
Hon. Najib Balala Well deserved wins! Congratulations! Peres Jepchirchir and Brigid Kosgei for winning Gold and Silver in the women’s Marathon.
