What you need to know:

  • Mutai said he wants to prove that his performance in Boston was not a fluke. “People have been wondering if my performance in Boston was genuine and that is what I want to dispel when I race in London,” Mutai said.
  • Mutai, whose legitimate best time stands at 2.04.15 (Berlin 2012) made his marathon debut at Eldoret’s Kass Marathon in 2007 and finished second in 2.12.22 hours.

It was devastating for Geoffrey Mutai when the IAAF declined to ratify as a World Record, the quickest time of 2.03.20 he set when winning the 2011 Boston Marathon.
