Mazuronak wins European marathon gold despite nosebleed

UK Sport | Published:

The Belarusian suffered the nosebleed early in the race but battled on.

Belarus’ Volha Mazuronak won European marathon gold on Sunday – despite suffering from a nosebleed.

The 29-year-old finished ahead of Clemence Calvin from France and the Czech Republic’s Eva Vrabcova Nyvltova.

She clocked two hours 26.22 minutes on the streets of Berlin but had to battle a nose bleed early on.

After stemming the bleeding, Mazuronak also almost went the wrong way with less than a mile remaining.

Marathon world record holder Paula Radcliffe told the BBC: “It’s very unusual, I don’t think I’ve ever seen it, especially in the early stages of a marathon.”

Tracy Barlow was the highest of five British runners, coming 15th.
