Keitany smashes Olomouc course record to take the victory at the Mattoni Olomouc Half Marathon


Mary Keitany emerged triumphant in the women’s contest smashing the course record by more than two minutes at the Mattoni Olomouc Half Marathon, an IAAF Gold Label Road Race on Saturday (20)

Keitany clocked and impressive 1h06’38 for her eighth sub-67-minute performance for the distance. Thousands of spectators lining the route saw Keitany put on a show of the highest class.
