Dubai Men's Preview: Will Kenenisa Bekele Arrive As A Marathon Force In Dubai? Or Will Countryman Lelisa Desisa Win 2nd Title In 3 Years?
Bekele, now working with coach and LRC message board poster Renato Canova, is targeting the course record of 2:04:23 and says he feels more prepared for his third career marathon. Desisa, who just lost out to Wilson Kipsang in New York last year, leads a group of 20 other men who have broken 2:10, including Berhanu Shiferaw (2:04:48) and Feyisa Lilesa (2:04:52).
