The 2022 London Marathon came down to the final 2 miles in both the men’s and women’s races and Yalemzerf Yehualaw and Amos Kipruto put on a show.

Yehualaw ran 10:01 for miles 24 and 25 as Kipruto blasted a 4:21 25th mile to get the win, and Kenenisa Bekele showed his career is not over as he ran with the leaders until 5 miles to go and broke the masters world record.
