Oromo Athletes Shura Kitata Tola and Sisay Lemma win the 2020 London Marathon on the day of Irreecha, Oromo Thanksgiving day. Shinning and colourful victory on the event of the colourful Oromo national cultural festival

The most dramatic of finishes at the London Marathon, Oromo Athlete Shura Kitata Tola is the 2020 London Marathon Winner in the Elite Men’s Race on Sunday 4th October 2020. Vincent Kipchumba of Kenya and Sisay Lemma of Oromia are winners of the 2nd and 3rd places respectively. Brigid Kosgei of Kenya wins the London Marathon 2020 Elite Women’s Race. American’s Sara Hall is the 2nd. World champion Ruth Chepngetich of Kenya finishes third in the Women’s Race.

(THE DAILY MAIL): Shura Kitata wins the London Marathon as Ethiopian pulls off shock victory in the sodden capital ending Eliud Kipchoge’s reign as the king of the iconic race. Shura Kitata has won the London Marathon in a thrilling race in the capital. The Ethiopian emerged victorious over the route of 19.7 laps of St James’s Park. Kitata’s win puts an end to Eliud Kipchoge’s reign as the king of the race. The 35-year-old had not lost over 26.2miles in seven years but was shocked. 

In those shoes, with those lungs and that record, we just about assumed Eliud Kipchoge could walk on water. Nothing like a rainy day for disproving that theory and nowhere quite like the grounds of Buckingham Palace for dethroning kings.

Chances are the greatest runner the roads have ever seen will win again. But those are considerations for another day.

For now it is a time to wonder how it went so very wrong in St James’s Park and why. That is because he didn’t just lose to Ethiopia’s Shura Kitata, the 2018 runner up and a worthy champion here in 2:05.41. Shura Kitata has earned a shock victory at the sodden and chilly London Marathon on Sunday
