FRANKFURT (GER): Last year's runner-up Kelkile Gezahegn is aiming for a 2:04 clocking in the Frankfurt Marathon on Sunday, informs organisers. "I have prepared well for more than three months and I am planning for a fast time. My aim is to bring myself in a position to be considered for Olympic selection. I want to run 2:04 on Sunday," he said. Elite race director Christoph Kopp has instructed the pacemakers for a slightly slower approach. "Our idea is to cover the first half in around 62:40. In Frankfurt we often had a faster second half which is what we hope to see on Sunday as well."
