The field was decimated by the judges as four people out of ten were taken out. Spectators were a bit baffled by this and several people were heard to say it was ludicrous... Wimbledon tennis-style grunting was introduced as the leader gasped very audibly for air in the second half of the race. Perhaps judges will introduce a punishable offence soon to eliminate this sort of thing... The grunting must have helped as he set a new M60 British best, knocking more than four and a half seconds off the previous record.
