(15-Apr) -- Ethiopia's Yemane Adhane Tsegay won today's 32nd ABN AMRO Marathon Rotterdam in a personal best 2:04:47, according to the Dutch news site NOS Teletekst.  He won a spirited battle with compatriot Getu Feleke who finished second in 2:04:50. Both men set personal bests.

Kenya's Moses Mosop tried bravely to catch the two Ethiopians in the final kilometers, but finished third in 2:05:02.  His compatriot Peter Cheruiyot Kirui, another pre-race favorite, dropped out of the race.

Down the finish order, Dutchman Koen Raymaekers finished sixth in 2:10:35, and Canadian Dylan Wykes finished seventh in 2:10:47.  Both men qualified for their nation's Olympic teams with those marks, which were both personal bests.  Wykes became the second fastest Canadian of all time behind Jerome Drayton.

  NOTE: RRW will have much more on this race later today --Ed.
