Improving personal record
Belarusian runner Olga Mazurenok wins 32nd California International Marathon, held in US Sacramento
The track-and-field athlete ran the race with a worthy time of 2:27.33 — significantly improving her personal marathon record and breaking (by almost 2 minutes) the course record, set 15 years ago. Jane Kibii of Kenya was second, almost five minutes behind the winner, while Kristen Zaitz of the United States finished third. American Renee Baillie, viewed as a favourite in the Sacramento marathon, finished fourth.
