10th Tartu Inline Skating Marathon took place today and the first place in the marathon distance went to 19-years old Estonian Marten Liiv. Liiv also took part in yesterday’s Tartu Inline Skating Sprint and finished as the first Estonian by getting the third place in total (1:11.27). Today the second place in the marathon distance went to Kaspar Kaljuvee (1:11.34) and third place to Viktoras Cesulis (LTU, 1:12.16).

Liiv belongs to the team Uus Maa, where also rides reigning world champion in a youth class Sebastian Tigreros (VEN), who won yesterday’s Tartu Inline Skating Sprint and got the fifth place today.

“My plan from the beginning was to work for Tigreros in case we are going to finish all together in a group, but we managed to leave the group with Kaspar Kaljuvee. That is why it was possible for me to win the race,” said Liiv. Liiv and Kaljuvee left the leader group 3 kilometres before the finish.

Liiv beat Kaljuvee on a homestretch, was the first who crossed the finish line and became the winner of the 10th Tartu Inline Skating Marathon.

In the women’s class, Marina Zueva from Belarus repeated her last year’s victory and won the first place (1:12.25). It was her third victory in Tartu Inline Skating Marathons. Zueva was the leader of the competition in front of all the men five kilometres before the finish. She finished with the main group and got the 17th place in total.

“The race was really hard, I tried to stay in the same group with men, but the speed was really high,” said Zueva. The second place in the women’s class went to Estonian best speed skater Saskia Alusalu, who got the 24th place in total (1:15.43). The third place went to Diana Kaareste and her finishing time was 1:16.47.

1089 inline skaters started in the 10th Tartu Inline Skating Marathon. 618 skaters competed in the marathon distance, 302 in the half marathon distance and 169 in 10km distance.
