Mexican Tarahumara woman wins 50km race wearing sandals




A 22-year-old woman from Mexico's Tarahumara indigenous community has won a 50km (31 miles) ultramarathon wearing sandals.

María Lorena Ramírez defeated 500 other runners from 12 countries in the female category of the Ultra Trail Cerro Rojo in Puebla, in central Mexico.
She ran without any professional gear, and her pair of sandals was reportedly made from recycled tyre rubber.
The Tarahumara are famous for being excellent runners.
The race was held on 29 April, but only now has word about her victory spread.
