Ath­let­ics

The Daily Telegraph - Total Football - - NEWS -

Kenya’s Eliud Kip­choge won the men’s marathon but his vic­tory was over­shad­owed by a protest from sil­ver medal­list Fey­isa Lilesa, who crossed his wrists as he fin­ished to show his sup­port for anti-gov­ern­ment protests in his na­tive Ethiopia. “If I go back to Ethiopia, maybe they will kill me,” Lilesa said. “If not kill me, they will put me in prison. I have not de­cided yet, but maybe I will move to an­other coun­try.” Amer­ica’s Galen Rupp won bronze.
