Athletics-Bekele in a hurry for London marathon glory

NY marathon champion Mary Keitany of Kenya will be eyeing her third win in as many attempts when she lines up on Sundayat the London marathon and hopes it will be attained in superfast time.

Keitany, 33, wants to use the event in London as a springboard before she pushes for gold at the London World Championships in August.

After Monday's successful screening of the Kenya-dominated Boston Marathon in Kapsabet, Nandi County, the Bank of Africa's World Marathon Majors viewing parties shift to Iten in Elgeyo-Marakwet County for the screening of the London Marathon this Sunday (April 23). "I don't know about the world record, but we will run the best time". "I was left home". I am really ashamed. She won the Mattoni Olomouc Half-Marathon last June in the Czech Republic on a very hot day in 1:08:53, before flying to the USA for a pair of races in late July and early August. At the Quad-City Times Bix 7 Mile in Davenport, Iowa, she broke Susan Chepkemei's 12-year-old course record, then smashed the TD Beach to Beacon 10K course record in Cape Elizabeth, Maine, running away from the field in a personal best of 30:45. Those performances set her up for three and one-half minute victory in NY on a chilly and windy day.

Bekele was third in London a year ago and said he really enjoyed and learned from the experience. Of course, they have to cooperate in the early stages of the race to help each other maintain such a torrid pace. "Not one person to go alone". It's nearly 10,000 metres pace so it's hard.

Dos policías muertos tras un tiroteo en los Campos Elíseos de París
Docenas de vehículos de los servicios de emergencia fueron enviados a la zona, sobre la cual sobrevolaba un helicóptero. De acuerdo con medios locales, un atacante murió abatido y otro habría escapado.

Olympic 5,000 metres champion Vivian Cheruiyot isn't targeting a specific time on her London Marathon debut.

"I can not say the marathon is hard because I haven't done the marathon", she quipped.

No matter what the outcome, the women's race will have a new champion.

The women's race is also intriguing, with twice-winner Mary Keitany installed as favourite after last year's London and Olympic champion and fellow Kenyan Jemima Sumgong pulled out after failing a doping test. She will not be running the race this year.

The hosts took advantage, showing no fear against the league leaders and they broke the deadlock with Cop's well-worked goal. They need to start winning soon if they're going to avoid the drop, but getting points off Real may be too big of an ask.

"For me it really embarrasses the sport".

"I am ashamed because we are losing top athletes like that".

Ketainy added: "I think all of Kenya now is in the spotlight".

One million of North Korea's 25mn people are in the active military, with reservists numbering 7.7mn. Whether Kim Jong-un's military is capable of an effective nuclear strike is open to question.
