Gebrselassie to pace London Marathon

Guardian/PA feed:

The Ethiopian great, 40, has been enlisted to take a loaded men’s elite field, including debutant Mo Farah, to the 30 kilometres mark at world-record speed on 13 April.

The Mo-bot, Wilson Kipsang, Kiprotich and others paced by Gebrselassie… it’s going to be an uhh-mazing marathon.

I’d love to see all these guys in the flesh and on the day, but marathons are one of those sports where TV coverage is far superior. At least compared to schlepping around London with thousands of other spectators only to see these guys fly past in an instant while they grind out 3 minute k’s.
