She won the women’s half marathon in 1:19:24, ahead of Kenya’s Alice Koech in 1:19:30 and Zimbabwe’s Rudo Mhonderwa at 1:20:02. Speaking to Confidente after winning the competition, an elated Haitope (34), now in the twilight of her career, stated that her goal has always been to qualify for the Olympics.
