SA’s April on the podium at New York Marathon

2013-11-06 00:00

LUSAPHO April became the third South African to climb the podium of the ING New York Marathon since the international return in 1992, when Willie Mtolo won the event.

April went into the race with a best marathon time of 2:08:32 set in Hanover in May 2012 and beat many faster runners to finish behind Mutai and Kebede, both having previously run 2:04. Clearly the 31-year-old from the Eastern Cape has more to come. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
