And that concludes the coverage of the women's marathon. 

...

Of the 157 runners that started the women's marathon, 24 runners did not finish the marathon. But of the 133 that did, Kenya's Jemima Sumgong made history by taking GOLD while Bahrain's Eunice Jepkirui Kirwar took home SILVER and Ethiopia's Mare Dibaba finished with BRONZE.
India's OP Jaisha

Kenya's Sumgong made history.

Kenya's Sumgong made history.

...

With a time of 3:20:20, Cambodia's Nary Ly finishes 133rd and last in the women's marathon at the 2016 Olympics.

...

Singapore's Jie Shi Neo has finished and so has Saudi Arabia's Sarah Attar.

...

The race to not claim last place in the marathon is currently between Singapore, Saudi Arabia and Cambodia.

...

France's Christelle does not finish the race and that means we will have someone finish with the wooden spoon. Right now, it is Cambodia's Nary Ly

...

Currently in 135th and last place is France's Christelle Daunay. Will she finish last or can she avoid the wooden spoon?

...

125 runners have finished so far but we are still waiting on 10 more runners to finish the race.

...

In case you were wondering, the marathon itself isn't over yet.

...

And that game has just begun and it is level at 3-3.

...

Why don't you follow PV Sindhu's match against Michelle Li, here.

...

And that is a wrap of the Indian participation women's marathon. But Olympics action doesn't end there.

...

India's Kavita Raut  finishes in 120th place with a time of 2:59:29

...

Ecuador's Rosa Chacha rounds of the top 100 by finishing 100th with a time of 2:48:52

...

India's OP Jaisha finishes in 89th place with a time of 2:47:19.

...

While we wait for the Indian runners to finish their race, let us all take a moment to celebrate Jemima Sumgong's gold medal. Having won the London marathon earlier this year, she was among the favorites but having finished out of the medal places at last year’s word championships, there was still a bit of doubt but she pulled clear confidently and took gold comfortably.

...

The top 50 have all crossed the finish line and India's OP Jaisha is currently in 87th place.

...

The top 30 runners have all finished the race but there is still no sign of India's OP Jaisha.

...

North Korea's Hye-Song Kim, who finished 10th, Italy's Valeria Straneo who ended in 13th and Peru's Gladys Tejeda all posted their Season Best times while Australia's Milly Clark finishes 18th.

...

We are still waiting on the Indian duo to finish their race.

...

USA's Shalane Flanagan imrpoves on her 10th place finish in London by finishing sixth and securing her season-best timing of 2:25:26

...

Bahrain's Eunice Jepkirui Kirwa finished second and will take Silver while Ethiopia's Mare Dibaba takes Bronze.

...

And she has done it. Kenya's Jemima Jelagat Sumgong has won it with a time of 2:24:14.

...

Jemima Jelagat Sumgong is stretching her lead and she is on her way to becoming Kenya's first-ever Women's Olympic Marathon winner.

...

And we are at the final stretch as Sumgong is all set to make Kenyan history.

...

The World champion Dibaba looks like she is settling for third place.

...

At the 40km mark, we have a new leader. Kenya's Jemima Jelagat Sumgong leads the pack as she climbs five places from sixth. In second place is Bahrain's Eunice Jepkirui Kirwa while Ethiopia's Dibaba Mare is down to third.

...

At London 2012, Ethiopia's Tiki Gelana took good while Silver and Bronze went to Kenya and Russia. Will the gold medal remain in Ethiopia or will someone else take it?

...

With less than 10 kms left to go, all the runners hoping to improve on their current position have to do so now as the race inches closer to its finale.

...

India's Kavita Raut has finally managed to climb a few places and is now up to 122. Can she make a late push for the top 100 or even better?

...

Australia's Milly Clark has been making steady progress and is now in 15th place, nine places up from where she was at the 30km mark. From 54th place at the 10km mark, she has improved her place at every 5km mark and is on track to finish in the top ten.

...

Kenya's Helah Jelagat Kiprop, who was in 10th place until the 30km mark is now down to 20th.  

...

And making her way into the top ten is North Korea's Hye-Song Kim. All the runners below the USA trio who currently occupy seventh, eighth and ninth place have made a push for the top ten.

...

 Bahrain's Rose Chelimo stays in third place. While Belarus' Volha Mazuronak has climbed up to fourth place.

...

At the 35km mark, Ethiopia's Tirfi Tsegaye and her compatriot Mare Dibabe have swapped places and the latter is now in the lead.

...

USA's Shalane Flanagan, who finished 10th in the 2012 Olympics is currently in seventh place and is being followed by two of her compatriots in Desiree Linden and Amy Cragg.

...

With three of the current top five being currently occupied by African runners and the top two hailing from Ethiopia, it wouldn't be unfair to say that the chances of the Women's Marathon gold medal returning to Ethiopia looks very high.

...

Then again, like many experienced marathon runners, she might be conserving energy and momentum for the final push, which is still 20 kms away at the moment.

...

After a fast start, Jaisha has slightly fallen off the pace. After the 10km start, she was in 47th place but since then she has steadily fallen down. At the 15km mark, she was 56th and at the halfway mark it was No.59. Although she is currently in the top seventy, her chances of finishing much higher don't look great at the moment.

...

As far as the Indian contingent go, Jaisha Orchatteri remains in 67th place while Kavita Raut has climbed a place to 124th.

...

Bahrain's Eunice Jepkirui Kirwa is in fourth while Kenya's Jemima Jelagat Sumgong round off the top five.

...

At the 30km mark,  we have a new leader. The previous leader is down to third, while Ethiopia's Tirfi Tsegaye takes the first spot while her compatriot Mare Dibabe is still in second place.

...

India's chances of a good finish don't look especially great at the moment. But as the cliche goes, this isn't a sprint but a marathon. So we cannot rule anything out.

...

As many as five runners are leading the race and maintaining the same timing of 1:26:07

...

Bahrain's Rose Chelimo moves to the top and she is followed by Ethiopian duo of Mare Dibaba and Tirfi Tsegaye 

...

Kavita is lagging the leader by 9:57 minutes

...

The other Indian in the fray, Kavita Raut is languishing in the 125th place

...

Jaisha's timing at the halfway stage is 1:16:29
