It’s day 3 of our London Marathon elite preview and it’s time to focus on a pair certified distance running icons, each boasting careers of 20 years as professional runners – Kenenisa Bekele and Vivian Cheruiyot.
Not long after we’d written about 21-year-old Degitu Azimeraw in our Day 2 Elite Preview earlier this afternoon London Marathon race director Hugh Brasher announced that the young Ethiopian runner had been ruled out of the race after testing positive for Covid-19.
Day 2 of our London Marathon Elite Preview sees us take a look at two teammates on the famed NN Running Team (no not those two! We’ll get to them in good time) Degitu Azimeraw and, last year’s 3rd place finisher in London, Mule Wasihun.
The subscription service, named Cyclon, will allow subscribers to receive, and wear, the latest in running sportswear and then return end-of-life products back to On, in exchange for the latest version.
For the next 36 hours at least all eyes will be on the track. More specifically the Manchester Regional Arena for the Muller British Championships, which kicks off this afternoon, and the King Baudouin Stadium for the AG Memorial Van Damme Diamond League meeting.
This time next week Mo Farah will be stepping out on the track in a “competitive” capacity once more. Not since he won the 5,000 meters at the 2017 Diamond League event in Zurich has the 10-time gold medallist raced on a track at a professional event.
