Bekele pulls out of London Marathon….

Kenenisa Bekele

Ethiopian great Kenenisa Bekele has pulled out of next month’s London Marathon because of an Achilles tendon injury. The multiple Olympic and World track champion had been scheduled to make his debut in the London race which takes place on 26 April but he picked up the injury while competing in January’s Dubai Marathon. Kenya’s Geoffrey Mutai, the two-time New York Marathon winner, has been added to the field for the men’s race which already features current marathon record-holder Dennis Kimetto and former record-holder and defending champion Wilson Kipsang.
