Question of the Month

This American athlete set multiple world records and won 10 Olympic medals over the course of his career. He excelled in sprints and the long jump for almost 20 years. Who is he?

Octobers's question was: There are hundreds of marathons held every year all over the world. Which one has the most runners?

Answer: The ING New York City Marathon is the biggest marathon in the world. Last year over 45,000 runners finished! It takes place on the first Sunday of November and goes through all five boroughs in New York City. In 2010, Ethiopian runner Gebre Gerbrmariam won the men's race in 2:08:14. Edna Kiplagat of Kenya won the women's race in 2:28:20. Wow!
