Athletics-Kenya's Maisei third time lucky in Hong Kong marathon

Feb 24 (Reuters) - Julius Maisei learnt his lesson from two failed early breaks to time it just right at the third time of asking and win the Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon on Sunday. The 32-year-old took the IAAF Silver Label race in a time of two hours, 14 minutes and 18 seconds ahead of compatriot James Mbugua (2:14:28) and Ethiopia's Deribe Robi in third (2:14:37). "I made the mistake of making my move too early in the last two years and my opponents caught me and overtook me," Maisei told reporters.
