They shall not grow old
As we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them
Nor the years condemn.
With the going down of the sun
And in the morning we will remember them.

Lest We Forget

The race was also the Olympic Games selection trial.

This result along with Ben's Olympic A Qualifying time already clocked almost guarantees him a start in next year's London Olympic Games. Congratulations Ben.
