2014 London Marathon Winner Wilson Kipsang

Wilson Kipsang Wins 2014 London Marathon

Wilson Kipsang Wins 2014 London Marathon

Kenaya’s Wilson Kipsang won the 2014 London Marathon earlier today in England with a winning time of 2:04:29. Kipsang is the current World Record holder with a time of 2:03:23 at the Berlin Marathon last year.

Runner-up to Kipsang was fellow countryman Stanley Biwott close behind in 2:04:55. It was a really strong performance from Biwott as he was not one of the top handful of favorites.

Third place for the men went to Ethiopia’s Tsegaye Kebede.  He finished a good ways back (relatively speaking) in 2:06:30 Kebede was the defending champ from last year’s race.

Ayele Abshero (Ethiopia) finished 4th in 2:06:31 just a second off a podium finish with Tsegaye Mekonnen (Ethiopia) rounding out the top 5 with a time of 2:08:06

Much heralded Brit Mo Farah making his marathon debut finished a very respectable 8th place in 2:08:21, just 15 seconds behind a tightly bunched group that would have garnered him 5th place.

Another success story to come from the marathon was American Ryan Vail who finished 10th overall in 2:10:57.

Edna Kiplagat Wins 2014 London Marathon for the Women

For the women it was Kenya’s Edna Kiplagat winning the 2014 London Marathon in 2:20:21.

Fellow countrywoman Florence Kiplagat finished extremely close behind Edna in 2:20:24 with Ethiopia’s Tirunesh Dibaba 11 seconds behind her in 2:20:35.

Mutai, Keitany Win World Marathon Majors After NYC Marathon Cancellation

Mutai, Keitany Win World Marathon Majors After NYC Marathon Cancellation

The World Marathon Majors® (WMM) has decided that Geoffrey Mutai (Kenya) and Mary Keitany (Kenya) are the champions of the 2011-2012 World Marathon Majors Series, in the wake of the cancellation of the 2012 New York City Marathon.

From BAA: With the cancellation of the 2012 ING New York City Marathon, the 2011-2012 Series has concluded and there will be no additional points awarded. Mutai had already secured the Series title in advance of the New York race with 75 points tallied in winning the 2011 Boston Marathon, the 2011 ING New York City Marathon, and the 2012 BMW Berlin Marathon. Keitany secured the title with 65 points accumulated with victories at the 2011 and 2012 Virgin London Marathons, and a third place finish at the 2011 ING New York City Marathon. These athletes will split the $1 million prize purse.

The New York City Marathon, that was scheduled for November 4, 2012, was cancelled after Hurricane Sandy struck the area leaving massive devastation and loss of human life.

NYRR president Mary Wittenberg along with NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg decided less than 40 hours before the start of the scheduled marathon to cancel the race after announcing earlier in the week that the race would proceed as planned.

Kenya Flag

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.
