Portugese runner Ana Dulce Félix won Sunday’s Austrian Women’s Run. She ran the 5km elite race in 15:27.40 and beat the 2-year-old course record set by Jelena Prokopcuka by 2 seconds. Félix won by a clear margin, 25 seconds ahead of compatriot Jessica Augusto. The 3rd place went to Germany’s Sabrina Mockenhaupt who clocked 15:59.30.
Félix said she was surprised by her victory. Only a few weeks ago she finished her first marathon, in Vienna as well, but said she didn’t feel the marathon at all in the 5km race.
