CHICAGO: Four of the world’s fastest marathoners and the top two finishers in last year’s women’s race are primed for the October 13 Chicago Marathon, organizers said Thursday. Kenya’s Moses Mosop, Dennis Kimetto and Emmanuel Mutai, and Ethiopian Ayele Abshero all rank among the top 11 marathon performers in history. Mosop leads the way as the second fastest marathoner of all-time with a personal best 2 hours 3 minutes, 6 seconds. Kimetto owns a personal best of 2:04:16, Abshero has posted a 2:04:23 and Mutai a 2:04:40. In the women’s race, Ethiopia’s Atsede Baysa and Kenya’s Rita Jeptoo will face one another for the first time Baysa edged Jeptoo in a thrilling sprint finish last year.
