El Morabity clinches Marathon des Sables


Local favourite Rachid El Morabity kept his composure to clinch the 29th edition of the Marathon des Sables in Morocco on Saturday.

The 2011 winner, who was taking part in the final non-timed stage between Igadoun Tarhbalt and Aït Ichchou, finished safely to secure the title ahead of Jordan’s Salameh Al Aqra and fellow countryman Mohamad Ahansal.

In the women’s event, America’s Nikki Kimball edged out France’s Laurence Klein to take top honours with Amandine Roux completing the podium.
