Congratulations to all finishers of the 38th London Marathon!
Vivian Cheruiyot and Eliud Kipchoge of Kenya are the winners of
the biggest and hottest London-Marathon ever.
Wheelchar champions are Madison de Rosario (US) and once again
British hero David.
A record field of 40,188 runners finished the 38th London
Marathon. Also the temperatur of 24°c is a record. Just after 8
pm, clocking 9:33 h, the last runner got her medal. The rate of
female participants increased to a record of 40.5%.
Male and female elites set off at world record pace with
impressive half marathon splits of 1:01:00 and 1:07:16. But then
they had to pay tribute to the heat of the day. Mary Keitany
fell back to 5th place and 2:24:27, Tirunesh Dibaba quit. Vivian
Cheruiyot kept calm at the beginning and made a constant high
level race to surprising win. She improved her PB by 5 minutes
and is now the world's number 4 at 2:18:31.
Eliud Kipchoge reigned the race and cruised to safe win after
2:04:17. 21-year-old Tola Kitata of Ethopia made it to second
place after 2:04:49 and local hero Mo Farah fulfilled the
expectations as 3rd on the podium and setting a new British
record at 2:06:21.
