A runner who carried an exhausted fellow athlete over the London Marathon finishing line says helping him to the end was more important than the race time.

Matthew Rees encountered the staggering racer as the pair rounded the final stretch in front of Buckingham Palace on Sunday.

To raucous cheers, the 29-year-old Rees put his fatigued rival's arm around his neck and hauled him to the end of the 26.2-mile (42.2-kilometer) course. The pair then separated.

"I took the final corner thinking 'right, it's nearly done, time to sprint', and I saw this guy and his legs just crumbled below him," Rees said. "I saw him try to stand up again and his legs just went down again, and I thought, 'This is more important, getting him across the line is more important than shaving a few seconds off my time.'

"I went over to try and help him and, every time he tried to get up, he just fell down again and again, so I just tried to cheer him on, picked him up and said, 'Come on, we can do this'. He was really grateful, but he wasn't very coherent." nydailynews.com
A club runner with Swansea Harriers stunned Britain's elite men at the London Marathon to qualify for the 2017 World Championships in London.

Josh Griffiths, 23, finished in two hours 14 minutes 49 seconds on his marathon debut to claim an automatic qualifying place for August's Worlds.

Griffiths, who started behind the elite field, was the first British runner to cross the finish line and 13th overall.

"The crowd was amazing and carried me to the finish line," Griffiths said.

"The goal for me was to try and run the Welsh Commonwealth Games qualifying time of 2:16:00. It never crossed my mind that I would be running in the World Championships in the summer."

Robbie Simpson was fastest of Britain's established names, finishing in 2:15:04 ahead of Andrew Davies (2:15:11).

The race was won by Daniel Wanjiru of Kenya in 2:05:56. bbc.co.uk
Is there any shoe that Adidas won't put the "Triple White" colorway on? It extends the scheme to the Busenitz Pure Boost on this new release, which is available now from Premier online. The Adidas Busenitz Pure Boost PK is a modernized version of the classic Busenitz. 

It comes with a Boost midsole and an upper constructed out of Primeknit.The Triple White motif is accomplished by giving the shoe White laces, branding, lining and tongue features. 

The Adidas Busenitz Pure Boost PK is not as celebrated as Adidas runners like the Ultra Boost or more lifestyle silhouettes like the NMD, so it's doubtful this pair will fly off shelves with the same speed.

That being said, it seems like anything with Boost on it these days can do numbers for Adidas. Along with the Boost cushioning used for the sole, this shoe has a Primeknit construction on the upper. solecollector.com
Instead of a postseason run in the Jordan Super.Fly 5 PO, Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin debuted the next model in the series—the Jordan Super.Fly 6. The Super.Fly launch typically goes down in early summer, so more information about the Super.Fly 6 should be known soon.

Unfortunately, after suffering a toe injury during Game 3 of the Los Angeles Clippers' first round playoff series against the Utah Jazz, Griffin's time in the new model has been cut short.

Griffin played in two different colorways of the Super.Fly 6 before being sidelined for the remainder of the playoffs. Absent on the model is the fused mesh construction that had become a series staple.

Tech and design information hasn't officially been announced by Jordan Brand, but there appears to be a return to raw construction, along with a flowing, contoured sole.  solecollector.com
