Attemptees:

29 Guinness Book Records have been achieved this year.
"The pantomime horse" succeeded,  the Womble was unlucky.

Hula:

Sasha Kenney earns her entry in the  Guinness Book by Hula-hooping for  5:05:57 hours.
 

Elite Women:

When Mary Keitany accelerates,
pace makers start to get problems.

Continental Solo:

Irina Mikitenko was very unhappy with her result. However, clocking 2:24:53 she finished as fastest non-African woman and she organised her run perfectly.

Elite Men:

World record holder Patrick Makau gave up early in the race and failed to be nominated for the Olympic Games.
It seems to be more difficult to qualify for the Kenyan team than to win the Olympic marathon.

Frequent Guests:

Tsegaye Kebede (ETH) and Martin Lel know each other very well from various London Marathons. Both count 10 Londons together. Today they overtake the leading group and finish at places 3 and 2.

Martin Lel (KEN) celebrated three victories in London and finished runner-up another three times. He is the most successful London runner but he also wasn't nominated for the Olympics.

The Mall:

That's how the scene looks after 4:30 hours. Every minute there are 300 finishers to be cared for.

Mary Keitany (KEN):

2:18:37 make an impressive African record. Mary is third fastest woman ever, behind Paula Radcliffe and Liliya Shobukhova.

Two Finishers:

He won Frankfurt and now he won  London. In Germany he missed the world record by 4 seconds, today in London he missed the course record by 4 seconds. Wilson Kipsang now will start at the Olympics as the main favourite. The proud lady agrees.
