Is anyone going to run 2:18:56 Paula's 4th fastest time? I like to see that broken by 5 women. ATsede BAysa, Mary Keitany, Florence, Lucy Kabuu, Koren Yal.
No way Rotterdam goes that slow compared to the others. It's a faster course than London with a quality field, and there are always a couple surprise performances there. As long as the weather is cool and calm I predict that's where will see the WR contention and London will go 2:04 low to shave some off its course record at the most.
|WR will be 4 Kipsang|

Abel Kirui rarely performs well in spring marathons so i doubt he will win London.He is usually much better in autumn and championships.People are overlooking Kipsang who is in tip-top shape and almost broke Makau's record last year.
If the wind is string, the temps are warm, I agree with you. But, there are six Kenyans who have a lot at stake and have to outrun runners in other races.
No matter what, it should be an interesting week of marathoning.
|now you know|
If anyone amongst them can do this it is Keitany. But I think vivian cheruiyot has the potential as well.

Mutai is NOT interested in a fast time in Boston this year he wants just the win because that is what will secure him selection for the olympics.
Makau and Kirui are already qualified,so,there is a single place available as Kenya can line-up only 3 men at the Olympics.So,E&G Mutai,Kipsang,Mosop they will try harder than ever because at the moment is almost no difference between Kipsang and Geoffrey.Also,Lilesa,Worku and Kebede are fighting for the Ethiopian squad.
