Jemima Sumgong Wins 2016 London Marathon, Interview by Larry Eder


Jemima Sumgong has been one of the finest marathoners in the world for the past half decade. In that time, she has paled second in New York, Boston and Chicago.

On April 24, 2016, Jemima Sumgong won the Virgin Money London Marathon, after a difficult fall, where Jemima virtually jumped from the ground and ran to the front.

This interview was done on Monday, April 25, 2016, right after the final presser of the London marathon. Jemima Sumgong told me that it took her some time to realize that she had actually won! Soft spoken, Jemima Sumgong, like many of the most successful global runners, speaks English well and gives you, the reader, an inside view into her racing.

Thanks for Frederico Rosa, Jemima's manager, for his support in this interview.
