Mulugeta Uma won the men's race in the Paris Marathon and MestawutFikir took the women's title in her first outing at the distance to complete an Ethiopian double on Sunday.

Vivian Cheruiyot, the 39-year-old Kenyan who won the Olympic 5,000m title on the track in Rio eight years ago but was running her first marathon since 2019, appeared to be in difficulty at one point but recovered to take third place.
