Greek Australian Anastasia Marinakou sets personal record at Athens Marathon


Greek Australian Anastasia Marinakou set a personal best record in the 10,000 km OPAP Marathon held on Saturday in Athens, Greece.

Marinakou finished the race in 33 minutes and 38 seconds compared to her 2021 record of 34 minutes and 32 seconds.

“The people gave me wings. Finishing in this stadium is a unique moment. To be honest, I didn’t expect to score this performance as I had an injury over the past few days. But during the race I realised that I was in very good condition. I’m very happy,” Marinakou said after the race.

Marinakou, a Panathinaikos athlete, was followed by Ismini Panagiotopoulou (OKA Kavala) with 35 minutes, while Irini Tsoupaki came third with 35 minutes and 16 seconds.
