CHALLENOR NARROWLY MISSES PB IN PRAGUE
Jenna Challenor overcame significant challenges to finish 12th at the Prague Marathon on Sunday.
The 33-year-old Durbanite, competing in only her second 42km race, took 12th place in the Czech capital in 2:42:26, after recovering from illness and dealing with the death of a close friend in the build-up.
Despite the emotional troubles she faced, Challenor missed her personal best by just 42 seconds.
Yebrgual Melese of Ethiopia won the women’s race in Prague in 2:23:49.
