80-yrs Old Ed Whitlock Rotterdam Marathon Time : 3hrs 25Mins

I have just checked the Rotterdam marathon results of Canadian Ed Whitlock. The ever green 80-years old Canadian did not disappoint.

Ed whitlock ran a spectacular 3:25:43 (3:25:40 net) to smash the world 80-84 record of 3:39:18 set by Australia’s Robert Horman at Brisbane in 1998. (Source:running Competitor.com)

What is even more exciting about this results is the silver haired runner had been suffering from flu a few days before the race.

Thumps up to Ed! You are an inspiration! When we grow up we want to be like you.

Belainish Gebre Photo : Picture

Belainish Gebre won the 2010 Honolulu marathon. But her victory had been challenged by second place finisher claiming that Gebre had received fluids from Ezkayas Tsegaya, Gebre’s boyfriend.

The race stewards checked the photos and concluded she had nothing wrong since her boyfriend was not her coach and she had only received the official water and nothing else special.

They gave her the win plus the $40,000 price money.

Ryan Hall Asics Customised Running Shoes

Ryan hall is sponsored by Asics, a Japanese sports shoes maker. The shoes color are black and white.

The black and white Asics were custom made for Ryan Hall, so you wont see them in the running stores.

According to running competitor : His feet were measured from every angle, using cutting-edge technology, and his legs were measured for strength and flexibility in relation to other marathoners. Run testing on an indoor/outdoor track helped determine his ground impact, force and reaction time.

After 2 days of testing, researchers had the information needed to create a pair of shoes uniquely designed for Hall’s specific running mechanics. Read more @ running competitor
