I’m really happy with the race here today. It’s my fifth time as Vertical World Circuit champion but my sixth time in this race and finally I won the final! I was three times third, two times second, last year I didn’t finish and finally, I won the race,”  Lobodzinski声音欣喜若狂。 “I hoped to run below 12’ but it doesn’t matter. Finally, I can come back next year to defend my title. It was a perfect day for me, a perfect Sunday! It was the last race in my season so now I can drink some beer and eat a lot of chips!”

澳洲选手Darren Wilson在2015年创造的11’52“男子比赛纪录保持不变。澳洲选手Mark Bourne三次赢得比赛,但今天屈居第二名,现在也在总分排名第二。他评论说, “I was going along at a really good pace. Piotr [Lobodzinski] and I were fighting it out. At the second change-over, I took the lead and was still feeling OK, but then at the third change, Piotr came past and I lost a bit of time. I’m still happy to get second place with a very good field, so congratulations to Piotr for today, his first win on the ICC building and to take out the world circuit again this year.”

关闭领奖台的是12’36“的日本选手Ryoji Watanabe。他从当时排名第二最后至垂直马拉松世界巡回赛最终排名第三。

澳洲选手Suzy Walsham获得了她的第七个垂直马拉松世界巡回赛世界冠军头衔。无敌的她进入这场比赛前,由于在九场赛站连续六场的胜利,总排名已经是冠军。她以14’05“结束比赛,没有打破她自己在2014年创造的13’47”纪录。

I’ve had a calf injury for six months but it’s not really bothering me on the stairs but definitely on the flat, so I was a little nervous about today’s race because there’s a lot of flat running between the stairs,” 她说。 “I knew that I’d already won the Vertical World Circuit for the seventh year, but I still really wanted to win the Grand Finale. It’s such an amazing event and, as the champion of the year, it’s always nice to win the last race of the year. The competition this year was very strong which kept me on my toes. Probably I went out a bit too fast, so I really felt it in the last part which is why I didn’t break 14’. I’m a little disappointed with the time but super-happy with the win and a great way to end my year!”

精英女子选手巴黎赛站冠军意大利选手Valentina Bellotti14’57“取得第二位。 “I’m just back after a three-month period without running due to injury, just cycling and swimming for training. I really wanted to get back into racing and the only race I really wanted to do was this one. Suzy is unbeatable! Today I handled my race well, starting not too fast, so in the end I managed to get the second spot and I’m really happy about that.”

凭借以15’42“取得的第三名,澳浙选手Alice McNamara在最终排名上攀升至第二名。. “I’m so pleased and excited to finish second on the ranking! I was lucky enough to race in Seoul, Manila, Beijing, Shanghai and finally Hong Kong. It was very close for the final placings and I had to push my limits to get there. I would like to congratulate Yuko [Tateishi] and Suzy [Walsham] for a fantastic season and thank Vertical World Circuit, the ISF and Sporting Republic for making all of this possible. The world grows taller and taller buildings each year and this is an incredible and challenging sport. I’m looking forward to 2019!”
