PARIS (Reuters) - Peter Some recorded a surprise victory in the Paris marathon on Sunday, the Kenyan clocking two hours, five minutes and 38 seconds to beat Ethiopian favorite Tadese Tola and compatriot Eric Ndiema by almost a minute in chilly conditions.

There was joy for Ethiopia in the women's race, however, when Boru Tadese set a new course record of 2:21:05 to smash the existing mark by more than 30 seconds, according to organizers.

The previous record (2.21:37) was set last year by compatriot Tirfi Beyene.
