David Weir from the UK and 4 times winner of the London Marathon had a frustrating day after he got two punctures and was denied another win. Even though David had technical problems he still managed to come in third place behind Josh Cassidy (Can) and Marcel Hug (Sui).
Shelly Woods another British Athlete from Blackpool also had a similar fate when a puncture also dashed her hopes after 21 miles.
Meanwhile, as I blogged about earlier this month, Phil Packer began his mammoth challenge of walking the marathon in 26 hours in aid of 26 different charities. Phil who is spinal cord injured managed to beat his target and completed the marathon in 25 hours 55 minutes.
