American Dathan Ritzenhein To Race in London Marathon

Dathan Ritzenhein of the United States will compete in the London Marathon, it was revealed on Monday

Ritzenhein, a three-time U.S. cross-country champion is hoping to use the competition as part of his preparation for next year’s London Olympic Games.

The race, which is set for April 17, will also see a collection of major championships winners competing, including Olympic champion Sammy Wanjiru, world champion Abel Kirui and reigning champion Tsegaye Kebede.

“When I raced in London two years ago I produced my best time,” Ritzenhein said.

“So I hope the strength of this field can inspire me to run another PB this year.

“I am delighted to be returning to London,” said Ritzenhein, who was fourth in last year’s Great North Run.

“It will be a daunting task against such talented opponents but I am looking forward to the challenge.”
