2017 london marathon winners 800x323

27 April 2017: London Marathon & Sri Lankan Swimming Champion Julian Bolling

We hear from participants and spectators at last Sunday's London Marathon.  We talk to the winners of the men's and women's elite races, Daniel Wanjiru (above left) and Mary Keitany (above right) from Kenya and pre-race favourite Kenenisa Bekele from Ethiopia about running the second fastest marathon of all time last September in Berlin and his career highlights including world records and Olympic titles.  Two top Kenyan athletes talk about their anger and disappointment following the suspension of last year's London Marathon winner and 2016 Olympic champion, Jemima Sumgong following a doping offence and in the second part of our interview with Julian Bolling the former Sri Lankan swimming champion tells us about his journey to faith as a follower of Jesus Christ.
