HAMBURG - Eliud Kipchoge of Kenya won Sunday's Hamburg Marathon as the 15,000 runners in the northern German city paid tribute to the victims of the Boston Marathon bomb blasts. The 28-year-old Kipchoge set a new course record of 2hrs 05.30mins with Ethiopia's Limenih Getachew second 2min 5sec back, while Kenya's Lawrence Kimaiyo was third 4min 57sec adrift. "I am very happy, because I certainly wanted to break the record," Kipchoge, who won a 5000m silver at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, said having shaved 28 seconds off the previous record. Lithuania's Diana Lobacevske won the women's race in 2hrs 29.17mins finishing 1min 33sec ahead of Switzerland's Maja Neuenschwander while Kenya's Priscilla Lorchima was third 2min 6sec behind.–AFP
