â€œI am going back to Boston with a view of winning the race. That has been my favourite course and I hope to reign again,â€ â€ said Mutai who added. "I am feeling comfortable this year unlike last year when I had an injury. In short, I am equal to the task ahead.â€
Remember last year, Mutai was supposed to run Tokyo but was a late withdrawal. He then ended up being a DNF in London before 25k before running 2:09 in Berlin.
The article also includes another interesting anecdote. For everyone who thinks every Kenyan junior is an age cheat, please realize it says that Mutai was held out of the 2002 World Juniors as he didn't have a birth certificate.
