Israel’s four marathon runners enjoyed mixed fortunes in Sunday’s two races at the World Athletics Championships.

In the men’s race, Girmaw Amare finished in 62nd place in a time of 2.26.37, though Maru Teferi was forced to retire and therefore didn’t finish the race.

In the women’s marathon, Maor Tiyouri finished in a season’s best time of 2.49.45 in 63rd place, while Yelena Dolinin didn’t finish the race.
