Athletics-Bekele in a hurry for London marathon glory

Kenya's trio of stars - Mary Keitany, Florence Kiplagat and Vivian Cheruiyot - are promising a fast time in Sunday's London Marathon.

With four athletes boasting sub-2:20 personal bests, and another four who have broken 2:22, Paula Radcliffe's women's world record in the marathon of 2:15:25 could fall at Sunday's 37th Virgin Money London Marathon. In the marathon, running 2.10 and winning would not give you full happiness. I had to learn how to run differently from the track, a different foot strike.

Keitany, 33, wants to use the event in London as a springboard before she pushes for gold at the London World Championships in August.

Real Madrid players performance against Sporting Gijón
However, Isco staked his claim for a place in the Madrid XI on Saturday, with a match-winning display against Sporting Gijon. Yannick Carrasco struck twice and Filipe Luis added another goal as third-placed Atletico eased past bottom-side Osasuna .

NY marathon champion Mary Keitany of Kenya will be eyeing her third win in as many attempts when she lines up on Sundayat the London marathon and hopes it will be attained in superfast time. "I was left home. I was really discouraged". She won the Mattoni Olomouc Half-Marathon last June in the Czech Republic on a very hot day in 1:08:53, before flying to the US for a pair of races in late July and early August. "If the weather will be fine for us, we can run the best time", she said on Thursday. Those performances set her up for three and one-half minute victory in NY on a chilly and windy day.

Ethiopia's Mare Dibaba won a bronze medal behind Sumgong in Rio last summer and said it was hard to learn the victor might have been taking banned substances.

Organizers said today that the women's pacemakers are targeting a 69-minute first half. "Every race, every course is different and I'm learning with every one".

Out at Fox, Bill O'Reilly denies harassment claims
His audience was larger in the first three months of this year than it has ever been, according to Nielsen. O'Reilly, 67, had ruled the "no spin zone" on television with a quick smile and an even quicker temper.

Also hoping to be in the mix for a fast time is five-time world champion, Vivian Cheruiyot of Kenya, who is making her marathon debut. "But Having won here before, I believe doing it in super-fast time will be a great attraction to the people, fans and the competition", she said.

No matter what the outcome, the women's race will have a new champion. She will not be running the race this year.

"For me it really embarrasses the sport", said Florence Kiplagat.

Majority of Canadians support legal pot, but worry organized crime will continue
Despite those changes on the local and state level, the federal government continues to categorize marijuana as a Schedule I drug. A June 2015 Fairleigh Dickinson University/Public Mind Poll found 49 percent support personal pot use, 46 percent opposed it.

"I believe for us cooperation is important and we must try to run as a team in the initial stages to see we accomplish our targets, then we can go for the crown individually", she added.
