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!

To be fair, he doesn't say it was twenty continous minutes, it could have been several stops totaling twenty minutes. Or he could just be an overweight, snaggle toothed fraud.
