Paula Radcliffe, the world record holder in the women's marathon, was in Dubai to do TV commentary for the Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon (you can see the complete video here:

We asked Paula Radcliffe for an interview. She agreed and we provided a few questions that kept it a lively interview. Paula was asked the following questions: 1. If she was made IAAF CEO for the day, what changes would she demand? 2. Do we overemphasize world records? 3. Where can the women's marathon record go?

We had planned five minutes and the interview went just over twelve. Paula Radcliffe is a thoughtful observer of our sport. We thank her for her time.
