Just wondering when was the last time the Olympic marathon finished in the athletics stadium. I'd like to see that happen again.
On another note, just wondering if the Olympics is the pinnacle of marathon running. I know it probably is for GB, Aus, US but for the east Africans would they rather win a big city major in a fast time and get a big paycheck? I also wonder if you may get a stronger field in other races with only a limited number from each country in the Olympics.
I may be wrong, but I think they do get a paycheck for the olympics marathon, as it is also classed as a world major.
