His previous record was last May, in Milan (Italy): he ran the distance in 2:12:27. The Périgord is ranked first French, in a race full of control. After a stint in 1:04:18 in the half marathon in the French group, he gradually broke away from the 25th kilometer.

A superb performance which sounds like a revenge for the athlete who had to leave the competition several months after an operation of the right Achilles tendon in September 2018.
