Mo Farah breaks 33-year British record in London Marathon

Mo Farah breaks 33-year British record in London Marathon

Farah's 2:08:21 marathon debut in London four years ago left many wondering if he was more suited to shorter distances on the track. Sunday's marathon viewing sessions, dubbed "viewerthon", was organised by Bank of Africa.

Farah's decision to go with the early pace was a sign he was in London to race and not simply to try to run a good time. I fought as much as I could.

Representatives of Isuzu EA Ltd said they were proud to be associated with Kipchoge as brand ambassador. 'I still enjoy the win and I'm happy to be able to win for the third time in London'.

Next up will be one of the World Marathon Majors races in the autumn, followed by a return to London next year and maybe even a crack at the distance at next year's World Championships in Doha. Some of the staff tried to take a picture rather than give me a drink at the start. You get heavy legs.

"I think it's mission accomplished, I wasn't thinking about time, I just wanted to fight and compete with these guys". I can't be unhappy with third, looking at the quality of that field you would never have put me there before the race.

Great Britain's Jade Jones-Hall, after her Commonwealth Games triathlon gold and marathon bronze, finished seventh in a time 1.50.04, her quickest time on the London course.

With clear blue skies and sticky highs of up to 23C (73.4F) the 38th edition of the world-famous race was the hottest on record.

Before the elites came the Minis, as crowds around the finish line witnessed a course record by Kare Adenegan in the girls' Under-17 wheelchair event at the Virgin Money Giving Mini London Marathon, while Cera Gemmell delighted fellow Scot and race starter Callum Hawkins by winning the Under-17 girls' crown.

Kipchoge's victory was the 14th by a Kenyan man in London and his victory completed a seventh London double by the east African nation after compatriot Vivian Cheruiyot had overhauled record-chasing favourite Mary Keitany for the biggest win of her burgeoning road race career, while Lily Partridge was the British woman home with a PB run.

Three distinct groups formed in the first three miles of the women's race with Dibaba and Keitany at the helm, running side-by-side behind a trio of male pacemakers who were reintroduced into the women's race for the first time since Radcliffe's record-breaking run in 2003. "I can't do any better than what I did", he said.

"The older I get, my endurance is getting better".
