LONDON, April 14. /ITAR-TASS/. Athlete from Sierra Leone Mami Konne Lahun has gone missing after the famous London marathon that took place on Sunday, local media reported.
The athlete has finished 20th in the female elite group and was 410th in overall ranking. On Monday, the athlete was supposed to fly back home, but after the marathon she did not return to Greenwich, where she stayed in Great Britain. According to a statement by the police, the athlete did not have any friends or relatives in Great Britain, nor had she a cell phone.
Lahun is considered the strongest running athlete in Sierra Leone’s history on 5 km and 10 km distances. In 2013, she won marathons in her homeland and in Liberia.
All in all, about 36 thousand people took part in the 34th London marathon. Kenyan Wilson Kipsang came first among men, and Kenya’s Edna Kiplagat became the winner among women. Twofold Olympic champion Brit Mo Farah came 8th.
