    Mainova Frankfurt Marathon on Sunday: Frankfurt aims for new Heights with Strength in Depth

    (photo - Kelkile Gezahegn, Arne Gabius and Wilson Chebet as well as Christoph Kopp, Nancy Kiprop, Katharina Heinig, Mare Dibaba, Betsy Saina, Haftamnesh Tesfay and Jo Schindler) Frankfurt this year especially is rich in running talent with 14 men who have broken 2:10 and ten women with personal bests of sub-2:25, making the latter field among the strongest in the event’s 37-year history. Top of the women’s marathon charts on lifetime performances is the former World champion Mare Dibaba from Ethiopia, the first woman on the start line with a sub-2:20 to her credit, plus this year’s Paris champion Betsy Saina of Kenya among a group of women who should have the credentials to put the course record of 2:21:01 under pressure.
