    The marathon runner who did not stop - Kennedy McArthur

    The Stockholm 2012 Olympic Games took place in very favourable weather conditions for spectators, with uninterrupted sunshine. However, for marathon runners those conditions meant an extra obstacle in an already challenging event.   Half of the runners who initiated the race were forced to retire before the finish. Meanwhile, South Africans Christian Gitsham and Kennedy (Ken) McArthur led the other half still in the competition in its final stages.   The race was decided in a moment one would not see in the current Olympic Games marathon. Gitsham decided to stop at a one of the refreshment made available for athletes only two miles away from the finish, expecting McArthur to wait for him. However, McArthur did not stop and gained the final decisive advantage to win the race and take his Olympic gold medal.
