T-ru's debut will be huge. Not since Paula moved up has there been as big a debut for the women in the marathon.

given this field being annouced, the IAAF might as well award world marathon championship medals to the top-3 in London.

Kiprotich and Abshero are in for a very good test against this field. Then again, who knows if the cobbles could play into the Ugandan's favour again.

Great fields for both the men and women and yes, they probably should simply give the world marathon championship medals to the top-3.

One question - where is Mary Keitany?

The Baby Faced Destroyer is making her marathon debut. This could be something special. It will be interesting to see what Kiprotich does against these guys coming of that unexpected Gold. If everything goes right there is a chance we could see the world record go down. I would not be very surprised if Kipsang runs around 2:03:40. This is going to be one hell of a marathon.
