JEPCHIRCHIR wins the marathon

The fifteenth day started early. Due to the heat, the marathon has already been moved to Sapporo, but it also turned out to be too hot to run the race in full sun. And so the ladies started the marathon at 6:00 am local time. However, the high temperature played an important role in the race track. The Israeli rock salt suddenly stopped and had to let the top three run. Favorites Birgid Kosgei, compatriot Pierce Jepshire and American Molly Seidl, who was only running the second marathon of her career, decided who could take home a medal.
