Süss wins marathon world title

Esther Süss won the marathon World Championship ahead of Sabine Spitz (Germany) and Annika Langvad (Denmark).

Last year's champion, Spitz, suffered a flat at the 60km mark, but thanks to her teammate's assistance, she worked her way back up to the leaders.

"I'm very happy with the silver medal. What would have happened without the mechanical... well that's speculation," said the 38-year-old Spitz.

The Swiss racer Süss added the rainbow stripes to her palmares.  Earlier this year, she won the European marathon championships.  She finished in 4:33:47, with a 1:57 margin over Spitz and 2:54 over Langvad.
