Yiannis Kouros comes first in super marathon Athens, 09/05/2002 (ANA)


Super marathon runner Yiannis Kouros achieved yet another international feat on Wednesday, winning first place in the 48-hour race in the French city of Sizerre, near La Rochelle, and breaking seven world records.


The end of the 48-hour run found the Greek runner having covered 436.702 kilometers and exceeding by far his 48-hour world record of 373 kilometers achieved in 1996, again in the city in west-central France.


Kouros also succeeded in breaking the 300 km world record with 28 hours and 16 minutes, the 350 km one with 34 hours and 39 minutes, the 400 km with 41 hours and 53 minutes, the 200 miles with 30 hours and 42 minutes and 20 seconds, the 24 hours with 261.500 km and the 36 hours with 360.400 kilometers.


During the race, Kouros had been hampered by flu and gastric trouble, as well as unfavorable weather conditions (wind, rain and dampness) and was forced to stop many times to change clothes.


His next race will be the super marathon in Hungary and Romania where he will be covering about 800 kilometers.
