Emily Sisson breaks U.S. half-marathon report

On the USATF Half Marathon Championships on Saturday morning in Indianapolis, Ind., U.S. Olympian Emily Sisson clocked 67:11 to interrupt Sara Corridor’s U.S. half-marathon report by 4 seconds, which was set earlier this 12 months.

Sisson began on the U.S. report tempo, hitting 5 km in 15:54 and 10 km in 31:57. By 15 km, she had a five-minute lead on the chase pack. She went on to win the race by six minutes forward of Andrea Pomaranski (1:13:12) and Allie Kieffer (1:13:16).

In her previous two half-marathons, Sisson got here inside seconds of breaking the U.S. report in Valencia 2020 and Houston 2019, clocking 67:26 and 67:30. In 2019, Sisson had her first crack on the marathon, the place she completed as the highest American and sixth general in 2:23:08 on the London Marathon.

Within the males’s race, Leonard Korir gained the U.S. males’s half marathon title by one second, after a good battle with Futsum Zeinasellassie down the stretch.

The race got here all the way down to the ultimate straight, as Korir and Zienasellassie had been stride for stride. Korir charged forward within the closing metres, besting his rival for the win in 1:02:35, one second forward of Zienasellassie’s ending time of 1:02:36 and giving the U.S. Military runner his third USATF half-marathon title. Jacob Thomson of Boston was third in 1:02:46.
