Sammy Wanjiru shown here, winning in Beijing. The top three men from Beijing and women from Beijing will be contesting 2009 Flora London on April 26, 2009! Photo b Photorun.net.

This reference file was prepared by K. Ken Nakamura, one of the foremost statisticians in the world and a great friend of our sport. He prepared this and revised this after Boston and also added three notes:

a. For the first time since the 1984 Olympic Games, all six Olympic medalists in the Beijing Marathon will be competing in 2009 London.

b. Martin Lel is having an MRI on Thursday to determine if he is injured-he was hoping to get London win numero 4.

c. Sammy Wanjiru, 2008 Beijing winner is back!
