    It was not an official marathon, but the distance was official

    He had a pace car and other runners pacing him. But it did show that two hours was possible

    Nobody outruns a cheetah but I'll bet he could run down any deer on the African plain.

    Africa has spawned a huge number of tremendous athletes over the years, so that's really not that surprising. Sudan's Abdullah the Butcher, Kamala from the Republic of Uganda, Colonel DeBeers, the mercenary from the Union of South Africa, are among the fantastic sports heroes that the dark continent has spawned.
