Australian Shelley wins men's marathon

GLASGOW - Australian Michael Shelley won gold in the men's marathon at the Commonwealth Games on Sunday to better his silver-medal showing in Delhi four years ago.

Shelley, who finished 16th in the London Olympics, clocked a personal best of 2hr 11min 15sec on the largely flat course around the streets of Glasgow, his first marathon of the year.

Kenya's Stephen Chemlany, a pacemaker for compatriot Patrick Makau's world record run in the Berlin marathon last year when he went on to finish fourth in a personal best of 2:06.24, claimed silver in 2:11.58. Uganda's Abraham Kiplimo took bronze at 1:08.
