Kami Semick, also running her 2nd Comrades, won "gold" with her 3rd place finish in 6:26:25 just behind the Nurgalieva twins that have dominated this race the past few years (her video). Ultrarunner Ellie Greenwood finished 4th in 6:32:47.
The 2011 Comrades Marathon was won by Stephen Muzhingi (5:32:46), who finished a hat trick of three consecutive wins. Olena Nurgalieva also repeated (6:24:11), just 14 seconds ahead of her twin sister, Olesya, just like last year (and 8 of the 9 last Comrades). Their spirits were high, despite the fact that thieves robbed all of the winners while they ran (a countrywide manhunt is currently in progress).

Congrats, you guys!
