Kipsang Wins London In Course Record

Kipsang Wins London In Course Record

By his own high standards it was no surprise to hear Mo say he was disappointed with his race, even though Steve Jones is the only British athlete to run faster and Charlie Spedding, the 1984 Los Angeles bronze-medalist, lost his English record. Haile Gebrselassie has said that Mo is running too well on the track to switch to the marathon yet. We all know that Mo can be a good marathon runner , but can he be the best in the world? Tirunesh Dibaba had a great debut in third, as did Chris Thompson in 11th. The Kenyans dominated both races. One final thought. How good was Steve Jones!
