    World Record! 2:01:09 for Kipchoge taking exactly 30s off his record. He won the race by almost 5 minutes!

    There were many more good times in the Women's race:

    1 Tigist Assefa 2:15:37 (68:13 / 67:24 splits) - Just the third woman to run sub-2:16 (this was her second marathon). She's also the owner of a sub-2 800m PB from 2014 !
    2 Rosemary Wanjiru 2:18:00 - The second fastest debut ever, I think
    ...
    6 Keira D'Amato 2:21:48 - on sub-2:19 NR pace at halfway but faded
    7 Rika Kaseda (JPN) 2:21:55 - a 6+ minute PB! Now # 10 Japanese A-T
    8 Ayuko Suzuku (JPN) 2:22:02 - also a 6+ minute PB!
    9 Sayaka Sato (JPN) 2:22:13 - a 1+ minute PB
    ...
    12 Natasha Wodak (CAN) 2:23:12 - a 3 min PB at 40 years old!
    ...
    15 Lisa Weightman (AUS) 2:24:00 - a 1 min PB for the 43yo​

    Nozomi Tanaka set a 1.3s PB in finishing 2nd in the 5000 today at the Japanese Corporate Championships with 14:58.60. Margaret Akidor (KEN) won in 14:57.81.

    Judging by Nozomi's 62/63s last lap she can go faster still. She's shown signs this late summer of spreading her wings by racing more abroad, so hopefully she decides to get in a DL 5000 next year. If so, Ririka Hironaka's NR of 14:52.87 will be in danger (if mega-talent 19yo Seira Fuwa doesn't get there first!). Fuwa is on the comeback trail after getting an achilles injury in February - 2 weeks ago she won her first serious race since then, a 32:55 10,000.​​

    Meanwhile, Kipchoge is through halfway in Berlin in 59:51 !!! No, that's not a typo!!

    If the 12.12 was a timing error what about the 12.06w in the final? Anyone arguing that these times are not legit is pretty much saying that there was a timing error that only happened on a small number of women's 100H races and no other races, which seems highly unlikely.

    I don't think anyone is still suggesting Amusan's run wasn't legitimate.

    I notice that today World Athletics announced they have officially ratified Tobi Amusan's 12.12 world record from Eugene as well as the other records set by Sydney McLaughlin and Mondo Duplantis, plus the under 20 record from Letsile Tebogo.

    I doubt it will ever come to light as to whether the timing was not legitimate, but I wouldn't be at all surprised if the governing body had the controversy "swept it under the carpet" so to speak similar to how the 10.49 record was accepted 34 years ago.

    An Ethiopian double at the Copenhagen Half Marathon.

    Milkesa Mengesha won the Men's race in 58:58 PB. Defending champ Amedework Walelegn was 2nd and Dominic Lobalu 5th.

    In the Women's race Tsigie Gebreselama had a 29s lead over Tadu Teshome at 15km (both 21yo) but faded and was overhauled by Teshome who won in 66:13. Teshome will be familiar as Tade Naru to anyone who watches the Women's Grand Prix Series 10k races in South Africa. She should be in Jo'burg in 2 weeks' time to defend her lead in the overall standings there (worth a good pay day!) Pre-race favourite, Vicoty Chepngeno, was up in the lead three on sub-65 pace for the first 8k or so but faded back to 8th.
    Calli Thackery ran around 69:00 PB (official results not yet available)

    At the 10 mile Dam tot Damloop in Netherlands, Margaret Chelimo Kipkemboi won a close race in 50:42. Lonah Salpeter was over a minute behind in 4th. Charles Langat won the Men's race in 45:14.​

    Last night's Sydney Marathon was won in a thrilling 3-way finish by Moses Kibet, 2:07:02. In the Women's race Tigist Girma pulled away in the last few km to win in 2:25:09. She's a two-time sub-2:20 athlete.
