Evans breaks through in Chicago race
Monday 21 October 1996
"This has got to be the best moment of my career so far," he said. "It's my first big marathon win, and a personal best is the icing on the cake. It's good to know I'm still getting better at 35."
Evans, second in the last New York marathon and third in this year's London race, finished well clear to take the $40,000 (pounds 25,500) first prize. Evans, whose previous best was 2:10.31, joins Steve Jones, Paul Davies Hale and Eamonn Martin as British winners in the windy city.
