Like many runners at Sunday’s Tokyo Marathon, Canadian wheelchair athlete Brent Lakatos struggled to stay warm enough to maintain his speed, and finished a disappointing 12th, well behind Canadians Josh Cassidy (who finished fifth, in 1:36:21) and Alexandre Dupont (11th place, 1:43:20). The division was won by Switzerland’s Marcel Hug in 1:30:43, with Daniel Romanchuk of the US in second place (1:34:25) and South Africa’s Ernst Francois Van Dyk in third (1:34:40).

In a tweet, Lakatos said, “This marathon was the hardest race I have ever done. I was too cold from the start to keep up, and it only got worse from there. Sorry for the poor showing. I will take away from this lots of tough lessons.”

In the women’s wheelchair division, Manuela Schar of Switzerland was first across the line in 1:46:56, with Tatyana McFadden of the US in second (1:48:52) and Susannah Scaroni, also of the US, in third (1:54:29).
