Posted by: Watch Athletics

The 2022 TCS London Marathon organizers revealed its men's elite field on Thursday (7). Ethiopia's Sisay Lemma, the winner of last year's race, will be joined by three men who have broken 2 hours and 3 minutes in the marathon. There are only six men in history who have gone 2:03 and faster. The London marathon has assembled a record field of eight sub-2:04 men that will clash on Sunday, October 2.

The loaded men's field includes numerous world and Olympic champions, the 39-year-old Mo Farah and the 40-year-old legend Kenenisa Bekele (2:01:41).

The line-up also has Birhanu Legese, the third-fastest man in history with 2:02:48, and Mosinet Geremew, who with his personal best time of 2:02:55 is the fifth fastest on all time lists. European record holder Bashir Abdi of Belgium, who holds a PB of 2:03:36, is also on the start list, with the runner-up in London in 2020 and 2021 Kenya's Vincent Kipchumba (2:04:28).
