London Calling . . . Who's On First

With a "Doctor Who" marathon playing on Chicago's WTTW-TV tonight, what better time to prognosticate about tomorrow morning's Flora London Marathon. With apologies to "The Doctor," who has the advantage of being a Time Lord, and with his Tardis can predict London's future like it was yesterday, here go my predictions:

1. Sammy Wanjiru, Kenya
2. Martin Lel, Kenya (he gets a little surprise near Buckingham Palace)
3. Ryan Hall, USA (the kid can stay with the Africans and Asians)

1. Geti Wami, Ethiopia (no Paula Radcliffe, no problem)
2. Berhane Adere, Ethiopia (two-time Chicago champ!)
3. Salina Kosgei, Kenya
