The incredible 2013 Virgin London Marathon fields were announced earlier today and there was one notable absence, two time defending London Champion Mary Keitany.
Keitany’s not ducking the competition. She’s pregnant with baby #2 and will miss the 2013 year. Congratulations to her.
Statement sent to us via journalist Alberto Stretti via Keitany’s agent Gianni DeMadonna:
“After being repeatedly questioned about Mary Keitany’s absence on the Virgin London Marathon 2013’s start list, Gianni Demadonna, the athlete’s representative, is glad to announce that Mary Keitany is expecting her second child. She will meet up again with the world of running in 2014, when she will return to compete.”
