Kenyans Ezrah Kiprotich Sang and Polline Wanjiku Njeru on Sunday emerged the champions of the 2018 Warsaw Half Marathon held in Poland.
Kiprotich, who clocked 61:37, said he was happy with his results after a battle with the humid conditions which slowed him in the race.
"It was humid and I even tried to increase my pace but it proved difficult. The winds slowed me down and thus I was not able to record my best time," said Kiprotich.
Kassa Mekashaw from Ethiopia came in second after clocking 61:52, while Kenyan's Hillary Kiptum was third after timing 62:18.
Wanjiku clocked 70:01, though her target was to register a brilliant run.
"The race was tough and I really wanted to record my best time, but there was lots of wind which slowed my pace," said Wanjiku, who was targeting a course record.
Wanjiku was too careful not to be beaten by the athletes from Ethiopia, who managed to come in second and third position.
"She started the race at a fast pace and I think she wanted to beat the Ethiopians. But after 16km, she asked me to slow down a little bi," said race pacemaker Pawel Ochal.
Birhan Mhretu Gebrekidan clocked 70:26 ahead of her compatriot Maeregu Hayelom Shegae who timed 70:52.
