Sporting CP athlete claims first international marathon win of her career

The Sporting CP athlete Jéssica Augusto won the Hamburg Marathon this weekend, covering the distance in a time of 2:25.30.

It was an historic achievement for Augusto, representing her first win over the distance in 11 attempts.

Jéssica dominated from start to finish, fending off Megertu Ifa to win by a margin of 4:17.

Sporting CP athletics technical director Carlos Silva was on hand to reflect on the result "We are really happy. It was the first time for Jéssica in an international event. The weather didn't help, but it was still an amazing result."

Also in action was Sporting CP's José Moreira, finishing the male event in 20th.
