London marathon

Kenyans dominate London Marathon, Mo not happy

Kipchoge, who skipped last year's race to attempt a sub-two-hour marathon in Italy, could not break Dennis Kimmetto's world record as high temperatures made running conditions difficult in the English capital.

Women's favourite Mary Keitany attempted to break Paula Radcliffe's mixed race record -- assisted by male pacemakers -- but the Kenyan struggled late on in the race, eventually finishing fifth and unable to add to her three London titles.

That allowed Cheruiyot in to take her first London crown, having won her first career marathon in Frankfurt only in October.
