I forgot Prokopcuka was in the line-up. She could easily surprise the Kenyans. I see you don't think Okayo will be in the top 3...

Margaret Okayo is an impressive long distance runner with wins in San Diego, NYC, Boston and London. The 2:20:43 in Boston was her strongest performance so far, maybe already peaked, she will be a threat when at full
health.

Winning time? NYC not famous for fast times, tactical race.

2:09:30
2:23:00

Can't wait for tomorrow :)

I see Ramaala, Keflezighi, Frederick Cherono on the podium, dunno in which order... even if I hope Italian Alberico Di Cecco'll do well

the women's race is very open among Chepkemei, Petrova, Denisova, Prokopchuka, Kiplagat, Tulu and Wami

great race!!! Are you happy Nevetssllim? :lol:

Amazing duel Chepkemei Prokopchuka, sorry for Susan, she felt sick but she kept up to run strongly but Jelena ran a really good race tactically, both deserved victory

Men's race was really crazy, fantastic changes of pace of Ramaala, and what a finish! Paul is the king 8)

I was quite surprised about that. Sadly, I had to leave when Prokopcuka was completely out of it and when Chepkemei was leading Tulu. At that point, it looked like Tulu would have won. I am happy for all European long distance athletes who do well-Radcliffe/Tomescu/Prokopcuka. Apparently, Chepkemei had a huge vomiting incident at 24 or 25 miles. Thought Kiplagat would have done a bit better but I supposed she has overraced slightly this year-11th or 12th 10k+ road race. She certainly was one of the favourites and she seemed confident.

I was surprised about Tergat winning in New York after a mediocre London run and injury problems. It is amazing how these Africans have such long careers.(Tergat, Tulu, Gebrselassie, Wami)

I was convinced that Prokopcuka would have had a better chance in Helsinki in the marathon rather than the 10k, but that could have simply been preparation.

Jon Brown seemed to apply the right tactic by hanging back.

Any news of John Mayock? Is he still running round? Did he not get past the Bronx?
