 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.

Three weeks after their wedding, the couple had emerged the first Nigerian finishers in their respective categories at the seventh edition of the Okpekpe 10km International Road Race.

Popularly referred to as Nigeria’s No.1 long-distance couple, Gyan and Pam got married in May 2019.

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.
