A super posting, Joan! I watched the marathon, and was so pleased when Stephen Kiprotich unexpectedly overtook the two favourites at the end.

He did so well, after looking as if he had a problem with his leg...couldn't believe how he took over....thanks Sylvia

I heard on local radio that when Stephen Kiprotich got home to Uganda people lined the streets and waved flags and cheered as he was driven to have dinner with the President. He was given $8000 by the president in recognition of his achievement. $8000 in Uganda is going to be a lot of money. Good on him, and I hope it lifts the spirits of all the people of Uganda.
