Marathon man Mo Farah should halt British decline, says Radcliffe

Paula Radcliffe might be baffled by Mo Farah's "half measure" approach to this year's London Marathon – he plans to drop out at the midpoint – but the fastest female marathon runner of all-time believes the double Olympic champion will take British men's marathon running back to the future when he tackles the full 26.2 mile distance for the first time next year. The British men's record has been stuck at 2 hours 07 minutes 13 seconds, the time achieved by Welshman Steve Jones, since October 1985. In Radcliffe's estimation, Farah is "well capable of running a 2hr 04min marathon".
