Radcliffe reflects on 'emotional' run
- From the section Athletics
Paula Radcliffe says that taking part in the London Marathon for the last time competitively was very "emotional" and she "never wanted it to end".
The 41-year-old was happy with her time of two hours 36 minutes 55 seconds on Sunday and thanked the London crowds who made a "special" atmosphere.
Radcliffe won the London Marathon in 2002, 2003 and 2005, and her 2003 winning time of 2:15:25 remains the world record.
