The U.S. men clearly need to have clinics on how to not lose relays in the last 50 meters. First it was their 4X100ms, now it's happening in their 4X400ms too. You would think they would have learned from 2017 Worlds. What was Norwood doing in that final stretch?
Congrats to Poland for winning and the world record! Belgium won bronze by .01!
It stood for 33 years - that's no mean accomplishment. Mo did well to finish 3rd - he still has a lot to learn about Marathon running as this was only his 2nd ever competitive one.
Sad to learn however that a runner collapsed during the race and has since died in hospital. He was a semi-finalist in the UK MasterChef Professionals reality TV show in 2017. So sad as he was running it in memory of his father who died 18 months ago
I saw the Men's leaders pass by while I was standing on the wall of the Tower - my husband and I took a tour and popped out just at the right moment! Wow, I haven't seen such crowds in a city in ages! It was really fun being there even though I wasn't there specially for the Marathon.
