Quote 'The next day was the London Marathon. I had to run it very quickly in order to catch my plane back to the US for the rest of the series I was running over there. It was all tight margins and I had a motorbike waiting at the finish to whisk me off to Heathrow as soon as I was done. I threw in a quick pace and stopped for a good 20 minutes in the middle of the race to do some interviews and say hello to some friends who had come down to the race to see me.'
Really - stopped for 20 minutes in the middle? - the timing splits show a 1:22 at half way and you can see from his splits that the only place he could have stopped was between 35 and 40k - but still not for anything like 20 minutes. What a load of BS!http://results-2015.virginmoneylondonmarathon.com/2015/?content=detail&fpid=search&pid=search&idp=9999990F5ECC83000016BBF2&lang=EN_CAP&event=MAS&search%5Bname%5D=young&search%5Bfirstname%5D=robert&search%5Bsex%5D=%25&search%5Bnation%5D=%25&search_sort=name&search_event=MAS
