Olympics 2012: Ugandan underdog Stephen Kiprotich outlasts favored Kenyans
‘Now I’m known’
Question of the Day
Kipsang was seemingly in control early in the day. He was out front and running all alone, before fading back to the pack. Kirui caught up with him while Kiprotich followed just behind.
At the 23-mile mark, Kiprotich turned the corner and was gone.
It was bright and sunny but grew hot, especially late in the race.
While other runners wore the colors of their countries, Guor Marial donned a predominantly gray and black uniform with “I.O.A.” printed on it. He wound up 47th, 11:31 behind the winning time.
Marial competed as an independent runner under the banner of the International Olympic Committee after fleeing a refugee camp in what is now South Sudan during a civil war more than a decade ago.
