Eliud Kipchoge of Kenya came home alone in the London Marathon to triumph in a course record time of two hours, three minutes and five seconds. And there was also a Kenyan winner of the womens race as Jemima Sumgong claimed a surprise win, despite taking a heavy fall.Kipchoge is the worlds best in the marathon and the defending champion produced the second-quickest run at the distance in history, just outside the world record mark of 2:02:57 set by Dennis Kimetto. After a duel with New York champion and fellow Kenyan Stanley Biwott, Kipchoge powered away over the final three kilometres to make it six wins from his seven marathons.Biwott finished 46 seconds behind Kipchoge, with Kenenisa Bekele of Ethiopia taking third. Sumgong crosses the finish line to win the Elite Womens race In the womens race, Sumgong came down at around 23 miles, after an altercation with Aselefech Mergia in an incident that also saw one of the favourites Mary Keitany fall.Sumgong, who had previously been a runner-up in the Boston, Chicago and New York marathons, cracked her head against the floor but managed to fight back and re-join, then pass, the leading group.And she went on to claim her first major title in 2:22.58, as defending champion Tigist Tufa of Ethiopia failed to reel her in down the home stretch and finished five seconds behind, with Florence Kiplagat third.Britains David Weir was again denied a record seventh victory in the mens wheelchair race, which was won by Switzerlands Marcel Hug.Having finished second in 2014 and 2015, Weir came home in third place this time, the 2014 winner Hug powering away in the closing sprint to defeat American Kurt Fearnley.Fearnleys fellow American Tatyana McFadden continued her domination of the womens wheelchair race, claiming her fourth successive victory.She was pushed all the way by Manuela Schar but took the tape at one hour 45 mins 20 secs. Runners cross the River Thames via Tower Bridge during the Virgin London Marathon 2016 Regarding the British team for the Olympics this summer, Scot Callum Hawkins finished eighth in the elite mens race in 2:10.55 to book his ticket to Rio.And Tsegai Tewelde, who was born in Eritrea but claimed asylum in Britain after the 2008 World Cross Country Championships, will be joining Hawkins in Brazil, having finished 12th.Hawkins brother Derek was third home of the Brits in 14th overall and, having also hit the Olympic standard, could be offered a discretionary place in the team.In the womens event, Brits Alyson Dixon and Sonia Samuels also ensured their selection for the Olympics after going head to head for the majority of the race.The duo had already achieved the Olympic qualification standard of 2:31.00 and the pair celebrated together after Dixon had finished 13th in 2:31.52, with Samuels eight seconds behind in 14th.Charlotte Purdue was the next home runner to finish (16th overall) on her debut over the distance and could yet join them in Rio.British astronaut Tim Peake ran the 26.2 miles harnessed to a treadmill aboard the International Space Station, with a simulation of the route through Londons streets playing on an iPad.The 44-year-old finished in three hours and 35 minutes, 20 minutes slower than when the former British Army helicopter test pilot ran the course in 1999.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Matt Asiata scored on a short touchdown run, Kai Forbath kicked four field goals and the Minnesota Vikings beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 25-16 on Sunday, winning for just the second time in nine weeks.Asiata had a chance to score three times, but he was stopped on a fourth-and-goal run in the second quarter and fumbled at the goal line in the fourth.Those mistakes hardly hurt against the hapless Jaguars (2-11), who dropped their eighth consecutive game and fell to 0-6 at EverBank Field this season.Minnesota (7-6) hadnt won on the road since Sept. 25 at Carolina. A loss to the Jaguars would have weakened their playoff chances.Sam Bradford completed 24 of 34 passes for 292 yards and a touchdown. His 3-yard TD toss to Kyle Rudolph with 2:13 remaining sealed the victory. Bradford did even more damage on deep throws early.Bradford connected with Rudolph for 44 yards on the first play from scrimmage and then found Adam Thielen for a 41-yard gain on Minnesotas second possession. Both set up field goals.Jacksonville had been really solid at preventing long passes all season.Before Sunday, the Jaguars had allowed just two pass plays longer than 40 yards all season. They gave up three in the first half against Minnesota.ZIMMER RETURNSVikings coach Mike Zimmer returned after a one-game absence and was on the sideline. Zimmer missed last weeks game against Dallas because of a detached retina and was unsure earlier in the week whether he would be on the field or in an upstairs box.Zimmer, who needed a doctors clearance to fly to Jacksonville, was wearing a patch over his right eye. He also had protective glasses on beforehand, but ditched those when the game started.BRIEF BENCHINGSMinnesotas Xavier Rhodes and Jacksonvilles Jalen Ramsey, who were nearly teammates at Florida State, both were benched following personal foul penalties.Rhodes was benched for two plays after yellling at an official in the third quarter.dddddddddddd It came after he was flagged for defensive holding. Ramsey was penalized for body-slamming Stefon Diggs in the second quarter.Ramsey left the field for just one play following his unnecessary roughness penalty.JIMMY SMITH HONOREDRetired Jaguars receiver Jimmy Smith was inducted into the franchises ring of honor at halftime. Smith cried as his name and jersey number (82) were unveiled inside the stadium.Smith captured part of the ceremony on his phone as more than 40 former Jaguars stood behind him. Smith joined offensive tackle Tony Boselli (2006), former owners Wayne and Delores Weaver (2012), running back Fred Taylor (2012) and quarterback Mark Brunell (2013) in the Pride of the Jaguars.The 47-year-old Smith, whose life has been defined as much by drug addiction as football production, is the franchises all-time leader in receptions (862), receiving yards (12,287) and receiving touchdowns (67).He still holds 11 team records, including most consecutive games with a reception (86). He helped Jacksonville make the playoffs four consecutive seasons (1996-99) and was voted to five consecutive Pro Bowls (1997-2001).Well, that journey has been tough and its not over yet, Smith said, referring to his personal struggles.A friend was talking to me and he mentioned that Im an All-Pro at getting back up and thats the message that I want to spread throughout -- to every kid, every Jacksonville fan, every adult, everyone. Be an All-Pro at getting back up because youre going to get knocked down.UP NEXTMinnesota stays in the AFC South and hosts Indianapolis.Jacksonville travels to Houston, which has won five in a row in the series.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
