I have just read the following story from Toronto sun website., it happened on 20th october 2008

“Daniel Njenga of Kenya collapsed into the arms of GoodLife Fitness Toronto Marathon officials yesterday, spent and unable to speak after running the 42.2-kilometre race in two hours, 29:02 minutes.

A doctor and a nurse checked Njenga thoroughly when it was established that he was cramping, officials called in a masseuse to ease the race winner’s pain.

Mumbi Kinyanjui, speaking on behalf of her nephew said Njenga just wanted to “thank God” for surviving the gruelling race through the streets of Toronto.”

The 32-year-old marathon veteran has a P.B. of 2:06:16 in the Tokyo International Marathon in 2002.
