Dublin Marathon 2008

Ukraine and Russia take top spots in Dublin as McCambridge and O'Connor claim Irish National Titles

 

Ukranian Andriy Naumov is the 2008 winner of the Lifestyle Sports adidas Dublin Marathon, in a time of 2:11:06

 

Clearly overjoyed with his win, he looked like he had another 10 miles at least in him as he crossed the finish line in obviously comfortable form.

 

Thomas Omwenga (Kenya) was 2nd, 1.23 behind Naumov in 2:12:29 and Tomas Abyu (GBR)3rd, in 2:13:06

 

Russian Larissa Zouska was the first woman home, overtaking leader Haile Kebebush (ETH)in the last mile for a close finish. Zousko won in 2:29.55, 8 seconds ahead of Kebebush in 2:30:03

 

Third home was Hadish Letay Negash (ETH) in 2:31:13

 

Best of the Irish was Michael O'Connor from Galway, in 2:20:49, while former Olympian Maria McCambridge was the first Irish woman home in 2:36:33
