Olympic Champ Wanjiru Aiming for World Record

Olympic marathon champion Samuel Kamau Wanjiru has confirmed his participation in the 28th edition of the London Marathon in April.

Wanjiru said he intends to shatter the world marathon record of 2:03:59 currently held by Ethiopia's Haile Gebresalassie during this year's Berlin Marathon in September

MY COMMENT: When will someone break 2hrs? These guys are amazing. Watch out for Moses Kigen of Kenya who is making his marathon debut this weekend at Rock 'n Roll Arizona. He has run 60:37 for the half marathon.
