    Near the national record

    With this time, Diana is getting closer and closer to being able to overcome the national and Central American record, which belongs to Gabriela Traña with 2: 38.22.

    It is important to remember that marks made in Boston are not valid to be taken into account as a national or world record, due to World Athletics regulations.In total, there were 64 Costa Ricans present in the marathon, César Lizano being the fastest with a time of 2:29.51.

    Regarding the positions, Quijano explained that in this type of races the position after the first three places has no greater relevance and the most important thing is the time obtained by the athletes.
