Kathrin is a German national running hero. She finished third in the 1987 World Championships in the 10,000 meter race and still holds the German record with her 31:03 minute time. Just five years ago she finished third in the Berlin Marathon as well.

As for this year’s Berlin marathon, Haile Gebrselassie won in 2:06:08, missing his own world record of 2:03:59 after slowing considerably during the final seven kilometres. Story here.
