Levins pocketed $6,000 for placing fourth as the top Canadian men's runner and earned a bonus of $43,000 for the Canadian record — $1,000 for each year Drayton's mark stood.

^^ just a reminder, JPN pays HUGE $$

http://japanrunningnews.blogspot.com/2018/02/shitaras-million-dollar-payday.html

:D

Quote
Under the plan, any Japanese citizen, whether a registered corporate league athlete or not, who broke the men's national record of 2:06:16 or the women's record of 2:19:12 on a record-legal course would receive 100 million yen, roughly 760,000 Euro or $937,000 USD at today's exchange rate. The athlete's coach or team would also receive a separate 50 million yen (380,000 Euro or $468,000 USD) bonus for their role in having made the record happen. If more than one athlete broke the record in the same race, the other athletes breaking the record would receive 10 million yen (76,000 Euro / $94,000 USD), with their coach or team getting 5 million yen (38,000 Euro / $47,000 USD).

japan = respect.

damn Jake got beat by Cam Levins, that's insane.

http://results.sportstats.ca/res2018/scotiabank_42.htm

Jake blew up/fell apart though somehow, with the leaders at 35km. then 40+ km he falls off over 2 minutes, crazy.

sucks, but that's racing.

Bernard Lagat, 2:17 marathon debut, but he ran wrecked at the end. quads/calves toast.

I love how genuinely positive this dude is.
