Ethiopia's Regassa wins Rotterdam Marathon



Ethiopia's Tilahun Regassa won the Rotterdam marathon on Sunday in a time of 2hr 05min and 37sec for the 23-year-old's first marathon victory.

Regassa's time was more than a minute below the record in the Dutch port city of 2:04:27, set in 2009 by Kenya's Duncan Kibet Kirong.

Ethiopia's Getu Feleke finished the 33rd Rotterdam marathon second, as he did in 2012, with a time of 2:06:46.

Kenya's Sammy Kitwara came third with a time of 2:07:22.

Winner Regassa made his marathon debut in Chicago last October.
