Africa News reports that, at the marathon, Lonyangata surpassed his personal record by finishing in two hours, six minutes and ten seconds – ahead of the first runner-up who was 46 seconds behind.  The 24-year-old’s success in racing started at the World Junior Championships in Athletics in 2010 where he won bronze.  Since then has won three road races: the Tegla Loroupe Peace Race in 2011, the Lisbon Marathon in 2013 and the Shanghai Marathon in 2015.

In the women’s category, 23-year-old Rionoripo set a new record in the marathon by finishing in two hours, twenty minutes and fifty-five seconds.  It was a strong contest as last year’s winner, Visiline Jepkesho, was also taking part.  In 2015, Rionoripo came first in the Lisbon Marathon.  She followed that success by finishing fourth at the 2016 Chicago Marathon.    http://www.konbini.com/ng/lifestyle/kenyan-couple-stole-show-paris-marathon/

Newman writes that “Boko” has a variety of meanings focused around denoting “things or actions having to do with fraudulence, sham, or inauthenticity” or deception.  “Haram” means forbidden.   http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Security-Watch/Backchannels/2014/0506/Boko-Haram-doesn-t-really-mean-Western-education-is-a-sin

Boko Haram is a branch of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.  It has been active in Nigeria since 2009.   Boko Haram opposes not only Western education, but Western culture and modern science as well.[9]  The group also forbids the wearing of shirts and pants and the act of voting in elections.  In its view, the Nigerian state is run by non-believers.[4]          https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_State%27s_West_Africa_Province
