Wheels come off Kipsang’s world record plan as Shitara hits jackpot in Tokyo Marathon

Dickson Chumba of Kenya and Ethiopia’s Birhane Dibaba won the men’s and women’s titles in the Tokyo Marathon - but the main focus fell on Wilson Kipsang, supposedly hunting a world record, who dropped out after 15km, and home runner Yuta Shitara, who earned one of the sport’s largest paydays in claiming 100 million yen ($936,000/£670,000/€761,000) for a Japanese record.
