 A Couple — Emmanuel Gyang and his wife, Deborah Pam — on Saturday emerged the first Nigerians to finish the 42km 2020 Lagos City Marathon.

Gyang, who was the first Nigerian male to achieve that, finished 33rd overall returning a time of 2:25.30 secs.

Pam was the first Nigerian female to get to finish in her category, finishing 14th overall with a time of 2:45.17secs.

Gyan, an athlete from Plateau State, also emerged as the first Nigerian at the 2019 Abeokuta Road Race, clocking 31.03secs behind Kenya’s Biwott Alan Kemboi who finished first in 28.76secs.

A Kenyan, David Barmasai, emerged winner of the 2020 Lagos City Marathon.
