Episode 136 - Olympic Marathon Review


The London 2012 Olympic Games comes to a close. We look back at the amazing festival that was the Olympics and review the surprise that was the men's marathon, including a catch up Team GB's men Lee Merrien and Scott Overall. David Rudisha runs a new 800m world record and Magic Mo 'does the double'. There's a right royal winner of the week. Tony brings us his weekly trials and the launch pad is getting busier.
