MEN THE DEFENDING CHAMPION


Kenneth MUNGARA. Kenya. Age 37. ODDS: 11-2. Kenneth loves Toronto Waterfront! In STWM 2008 he had a thrilling one-second victory in a sprint to the line up Bay Street, in 2:11:01. He followed that up last Fall with a massive PR of 2:08:32, a convincing victory, and the fastest time ever run on Canadian soil. Can Kenneth 3-peat?


THE CONTENDERS


Teshome GELANA. Ethiopia. Odds: 5-1. A 25-year-old teammate of Chala Lemi’s. Teshome ran 2:12:03 in Warsaw last Fall, then had a huge breakthrough to win Houston this January in 2:07:37. The second fastest man on the Start line, and the oddsmakers’ pre-race favourite.


Chala LEMI. Ethiopia. ODDS: 11-2. The 2nd place finisher at STWM 2009 in a PR of 2:08:48 – his first time under 2:09. He’s only 23 years old and one of Ethiopia’s bright young stars. He trains with Coach Haji Adilo’s group in Addis Ababa. Chala vows to return and “do one better” this year!


Daniel RONO. Kenya. Odds: 11-2. Age 32 yrs. STWM’s most-famous alumni returns. Daniel was our 2006 Champion in 2:10:15, then placed 2nd in 2007. In ’07 he ran 2:09:35, only to lose in a dramatic finish, to countryman John Kelai, whose 2:09:30 was at that time the fastest marathon ever run in Canada. After that, Daniel went on to record a scintillating 2:06:58 in Rotterdam in Spring 2008, place 3rd in New York in Fall ’08, then 2nd in the illustrious Boston Marathon in Spring ’09. Now he’s coming back to where his big breakthrough began, looking for victory AND a fast time.


Zimbaba YIGEZE. Ethiopia. Odds: 11-2. Will be running on his 27th birthday! A man with some speed, and a 27:37 10,000m on the track. He ran 2:09:46 in Reims, France last year, then made a big move to run 2nd to compatriot Teshome Gelana in Houston on January 17th, in a PR of 2:08:27. He followed that up with a 2:08:48 in Paris in April [7th place].


Jafred CHIRCHIR. Kenya. Odds: 10-1. Made a major improvement this Spring with a 2:09:15 surprise victory in Milan over some talented competition. It was just his 4th marathon, and a big step forward from the 2:10:42 he ran in Vienna in April 2009.


THE OUTSIDERS


Alejandro SUAREZ, Mexico. Odds: 50-1. Represented Mexico in the 10,000m at the Beijing Olympics. Has 13:18 and 27:43 PRs at 5000m & 10,000m. Currently Mexico’s #1 marathoner, this will be his third crack at the distance, following a 2:13:33 cautious debut at Maraton Lala in 2009, and then a 10th place finish at Boston this April in 2:12:33.


Nixon Machichim, Kenya (Odds: 20-1) David Niagi, Kenya (Odds: 20-1) Berhanu Bekele Berga, Ethiopia (Odds: 20-1) Denis Ndiso, Keyna (Odds: 25-1) Beraki Zerea, Eritrea (Odds: 25-1) Eric Gillis, Canada (Odds: 50-1) Reid Coolsaet, Canada (Odds: 50-1) Takashi Horiguchi, Japan (Odds: 50-1) Francis Muendo, Kenya (Odds: 50-1) Minoru Okuda, Japan (Odds: 75-1) Matt Loiselle, Canada (Odds: 100-1) Thomas Omwenga, Kenya (Odds: 100-1) Dave Norman, Steve Way, Brian Wilder (Odds: 250-1)
