Running standards improve

2012-12-05 00:00

THE 2012 international marathon season, now drawing to a close, has highlighted the improvement in running standards over the past five years.

The story is similar among the women, where the number of sub 2:28 performances has jumped from 36 in 2007 to 145 this year, and six athletes notched up a time faster than 2:20. For three of the five years, no one managed to break through this barrier. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
