LONDON (GBR): Wilson Kipsang has said he doesn't believe a race such as the London Marathon is conducive to setting world records, informs ESPN. "There is a high possibility that we could run a world record, but our approach probably doesn't allow this. It's mental torture. A world record does not happen in that kind of scenario. Everyone is strong and tries to make sure they beat this guy or that guy. Our minds are not relaxed. You cannot take that kind of approach to a world record. Once it's not a relaxed environment, you just see how you can win the race." Kipsang will be aiming to score his third victory in London tomorrow morning and is hoping to approach his course record of 2:04:29.
