Description

Kenenisa Bekele narrowly missed out on the world record on Sunday as the Ethiopian won the Berlin marathon ahead of former winner Wilson Kipsang.

The ex-Olympic 5000m and 10,000m champion crossed the finish line in an unofficial time of two hours 03min 04sec -- just short of Dennis Kimetto's world record of 2:02:57 set here in 2014.

Bekele's time was an Ethiopian national record.

Kipsang, who won the 2013 Berlin Marathon in a then-world record time, finished just nine seconds back and Kenya's Evans Chebet took third with 2:05:31.

Bekele ran the second fastest time ever, just seven seconds away from Kimetto's record, and Kipsang's time was the fourth fastest.
