World marathon record holder Dennis Kimetto will line up at the London Marathon showdown on Sunday.

Kimetto, who rose from trapping moles in local farms in his Kamwosor village in Keiyo South to earn a living, will battle former world marathon record holder Wilson Kipsang and defending champion Eliud Kipchoge in the United Kingdom's flagship 42km race. "I have trained well for the race.

 I now expect that the weather conditions will be good for us. I want to give it my best to be selected in the team to Olympics," said Kimetto.
