TOKYO (JPN): Kenya's Wilson Kipsang predicted at the pre-event press conference he will run a world record of 2:02:50 in the Tokyo Marathon on Sunday, informs Japan Running News. In the women's race, Ethiopia's Ruti Aga is predicting a 2:18 time while world bronze medallist Amy Cragg is predicting a sub-2:23 performance. "I'd definitely like to run a faster time but with the tough field here I'll be going for a top three position," said Cragg.

RunBlogRun Opines: Wilson KIpsang is the real thing. Can he get the WR? Look, five or six athletes can get the WR. On Amy Cragg, we understand that she is very fit. So watch for a sub 2:23 in Tokyo for the London World Champ bronze medalist.
