I am always amazed at the Olympic Marathon. It is so fast. Really, a race for the whole 42.2 km.

Stephen Kiprotich from Uganda made a surprising guts effort in the last 5 km to win from behind and steal the lead right through until finish.

Literally a race that was neck and neck for its whole distance, it was engaging throughout. Inspiring.

Uganda’s first medal at this Olympics, and in the last race.
