Kohei Matsumura and Yuki Kawauchi lost a footrace against Bahrain’s Ali Hasan Mahboob in the final stage of the men’s marathon and had to settle for the silver and bronze medals, respectively, at the Asian Games on Friday.

Mahboob, a specialist at 5,000 and 10,000 meters who was running his first marathon, grabbed the lead as the trio entered the tunnel at Incheon Asiad Main Stadium and held off Matsumura by one second in 2 hours, 12 minutes, 38 seconds. Kawauchi finished in 2:12:42.
