Congratulations to Martin Dent who ran a negative split in the Olympic Marathon!
To repeat an absolutely awful phrase I heard first at the swimming, over and over, and hope never to hear again, Martin's back end was his best. In other words, the second half of his race was faster than the first, he finished strong, passing many runners, finishing 28th in 2:16.29.
Full marathon results are at http://london2012.bbc.co.uk/athletics/event/men-marathon/phase=atm099100/index.html
Meanwhile Warrick's elevation map of Sunday's City to Surf shows that the back end looks just like that - a back end. I will have a speedygeese results update soon!
