The Unspoken Rules of Being a Badass: A Runner's Guide

Kenya Announces 2012 London Olympics Marathon Team

Kenya has announced the runners that will represent the country for the marathon in the 2012 London Olympics later this year.

This is paramount to the United States selecting it’s latest edition of the Dream Team for basketball.

Representing Kenya in London will be Wilson Kipsang, who won the London Marathon just three days ago, along with Abel Kirui and Moses Mosop according to the BBC.

In a bit of a shocker Patrick Makau who holds the world record for the marathon was left off the team along with Geoffrey Mutai and Emmanual Mutai.

Makau’s exclusion is probably similar to the USA leaving Isaiah Thomas off the original 1992 Dream Team because Michael Jordan and others on the team hated him so much.

Representing the Kenyan women will be Mary Keitany, Edna Kiplagat and Priscah Jeptoo.

Not that they will need it, but best of luck to Wilson (can’t help but think of Castaway), Abel (finally getting the better of Cain), and Moses (enough said), Mary, Edna and Priscah.
