Men tactical
CHICAGO (USA): The leading contenders for the men's race in the Chicago Marathon are all expecting a tactical contest on Sunday, informs LetsRun. "This race is like running a championship, and it is anybody's race," said Micah Kogo. "I came to Chicago because I want to start slowly and run faster at the end," said Stephen Sambu who is making his debut tomorrow. Ethiopia's Abayneh Abele ran a fast time in the Dubai Marathon in January but he is anticipating a different sort of race tomorrow. "I'm planning on going for the win because my confidence is really good, but I don't want to make any mistakes. I want to run behind the leaders until 35K, then I will push," he said. Reigning champion Dickson Chumba wasn't at the press release as he hadn't arrived into Chicago due to visa problems.
