Tomomi Tanaka held off Philes Ongori of Kenya in a last-ditch sprint before the finish line to win the Yokohama International Women’s Marathon on Sunday.

The 26-year-old Tanaka, appearing in her second full marathon after running as a pacemaker in last year’s event, ran in a heated battle with Ongori late in the race and crossed the tape in 2 hours, 26 minutes, 57 seconds at Yamashita Park.
