Italian Sport - April 11

Wilson Kenebei Kiprotich of Kenya took a wrong turn but recovered in time to win the Stramilano half marathon on Sunday, beating John Yuda of Tanzania by 11 seconds.

Kiprotich, who won the 21.1-kilometre race through downtown Milan in one hour 11 seconds, ran behind the police motorbikes which left the regular course a few hundred meters from the finish. He quickly realized his mistake, ran back and crossed the finish line with his arms raised.
