This video clip shows the final minutes of the race as leader Tsegaye Kebede of Ethiopia was repeatedly pestered by Wanjiru's persistence. The Kenyan took the lead in the final 400 meters to clock 2 hours, 6 minutes, 24 seconds and defend his title in Chicago where he had set the course record of 2 hours, five minutes, 41 seconds in 2009. Tragically, six months later Wanjiru was dead as a result of a domestic dispute back home in Kenya and a fall or jump from a balcony.
NOTE: You can see Wanjiru's post-victory interview HERE:
The NBC commentators on this marathon broadcast (Mike Adamle & Toni Reavis) are some of the most in-sync, spirited and genuinely interested that I've ever heard. Adamle can be seen running with the Chicago Area Runners Association and offering training tips HERE: http://youtu.be/4sPw4cEQ8KQ
NOTE: If you're not an ELITE runner like Sammy and would be happy to squeak in just under four hours then this is the video for you:
