KENYANS finished in the top 17 in the men’s Singapore marathon, with winner Joshua Kipkorir completing the race about half an hour quicker than the fastest non-Kenyan.

Kipkorir, who is 24 and competing in the Singapore marathon for the first time, finished yesterday’s race in two hours, 12 minutes and 20 seconds – the second-fastest time in the event’s history, according to organisers.
