Marathon: Makau wins in Berlin

Kenyan Patrick Makau won the Berlin marathon yesterday, but failed to break Ethiopian Haile Gebrselassie's world record with heavy rain and fog killing off his chances.

He finished more than a minute outside the record in a time of two hours five minutes and eight seconds, with compatriot Geoffrey Mutai second, two seconds behind, and 20-year-old Ethiopian Bazu Worku in third in 2:05:25.
