Former Olympic gold medalist Stephen Kiprotich finished 7th in the 2018 Toronto Marathon that ended on Sunday in Canada.

Kiprotich clocked 2:11:06.0 in a race won by Kenya's Benson Kipruto. The Kenyan was in good form to clock 2:07:24.0, while Tanzania's Augustino Sulle and Felix Kandie (Kenya) came second and third respectively.

Bahrain's Mimi Belete won the women's race clocking 2:22:26.

The winner picked a cash prize of UGX114 million (US$30,000), while the second placed pocketed UGX57 million (US$15,000).

“I tried to push hard but failed to catch the front pack,” Kiprotich told the media after the race.

In April Kiprotich finished 5th in the 2018 Haspa Hamburg Marathon in Germany.
