Men’s Marathon final 3.30pm – Solomon Mutai, Jackson Kiprop and Stephen Kiprotich

The Ugandan team in Rio is in exactly the same position they were at the last Olympic Games – entering the final day with no medal.

Like at London 2012, Kiprotich is the throw of the last dice only that this time he will not have the surprise element. The surprise element could actually come from his colleagues in that race Solomon Mutai and Jackson Kiprop.

Kiprotich gets a chance to join Abebe Bikila and Waldemar Cierpinski as a two-time champion in the 42.1km event.

There were fears hot weather conditions could play a big part in determining who will take the title. The day started with rains, which is ideal for nearly all runners.


 

Ugandans have what it takes

Uganda will field its most experienced team when the marathon starts.The trio of Kiprotich, Kiprop and Mutai have competed at the very top level for the last five years.

Kiprotich has since London 2012 added the 2013 world title to his accolades, while Mutai  snatched bronze at the last world championships in Beijing.

Kiprop on the other hand has finished 10th in the last two world championships.

World champion Ghirmay Ghebreslassie and Kiprotich’s training partner Eliud Kipchoge will be the men to beat.

Kenya’s Kipchoge has a 5000m silver medal from Beijing 2008 and a bronze in the same event at Athens 2004. He missed selection for London 2012 and then made the switch to marathon. He has been the outstanding road runner since then.
