Greatest London!? Sifan Hassan GOAT? Kiptum > Kipchoge? High Schooler Beats Noah Lyles

1 year ago

Issam Asinga Ran 9.83

What a London Marathon! Sifan Hassan battled back from the dead to get an unbelievable win. Does this make her the female GOAT?

Kelvin Kiptum put up a performance that would make Eliud Kipchoge blush, with a 59:45 2nd half. Could it be too good to be true? Plus sponsorship controversies, the top Brit getting his training advice from and everything London.

High schooler Issam Asinga ran 9.83 to blast Noah Lyles in a 100 and then talked some smack on instagram.
