A dramatic come from behind victory for Ethiopia's Atsede Baysa as Neely Spence Gracey was 9th.
It was defending champ Desisa who really broke the race open just after 25K and made it a two-man duel between he and Berhanu. But in the end, Berhanu was way better as he crushed Desisa over the final mile to win in 2:12:45 to Desisa's 2:13:32. Yemane Tsegay made it an Ethiopian sweep as he held off former champ Wesley Korir for 3rd.
