London 2012: Lee Merrien is selected for GB marathon team

Post by GD on Fri 27 Apr 2012, 5:08 pm

Lee Merrien will run in the 2012 Olympic marathon after selectors reversed a decision not to pick him.

The 32-year-old, from Guernsey, failed to run under the 'A' qualifying time of 2:12 at Sunday's London Marathon, but was the first British finisher in a personal best time of 2:13:41.

UK Athletics initially threw out Merrien's appeal.

But the selectors were allowed to reconsider their decision and Merrien has been added to the Team GB squad. (from BBC)
