TOKYO: Ethiopia’s Feyisa Lilesa stormed to victory in the Tokyo Marathon on Sunday after a devastating late burst of pace left Kenyan rival Dickson Chumba for dead. Lilesa, a former world bronze medallist, kicked for home with around two kilometres (1.25 miles) to go and clocked 2 hr 6 min 56 sec under sunny skies to claim his first major marathon title.
