NAIROBI, Sept. 16 (Xinhua) -- Mariko Kipchumba of Kenya will defend his title in the Beijing Marathon on Saturday, informs world's athletics body, IAAF.


Kipchumba has penciled a fast time as a priority for him as he lays down his title at the Beijing Marathon on Saturday.


The 42-year-old Kipchumba is almost turning over the cliff in his illustrious marathon career, but believes he has what it takes to run faster and improve his personal best, which stands at 2:06:05.


"Beijing has a good course and I was lucky to win there last year. But it is always important to note that winning a marathon is not just down to your training, it also depends on the weather of the day and how others have prepared. I have done my part and hopefully, my legs will allow me to carry the day," he said.


Last year, the Kenyan veteran, who ran down runners nearly half his age to take the title in the Chinese capital, has thrown down the gauntlet and hopes the young will lack the courage to take him head on.


Kipchumba will be gunning to become just the fourth man to successfully defend the Beijing crown.


He won here last year in 2:11:00 but his form this weekend will be shrouded in mystery given he hasn't raced over the distance since his modest eighth place showing at the Shanghai Marathon last November.


Alongside the Kenyan, there're seven other runners with sub-2:10 personal best time including Ethiopia's Mesfin Teshome, who ran 2:09:24 in the Dubai Marathon in January.


There is also Edwin Kangogo Kimaiyo of Kenya, who produced his 2:09:47 best in Enschede in 2015 while 36-year-old Beraki Beyene of Eritrea set his 2:08:27 best in Hengshui in 2014.


Leading names in the women's race include Olympic fifth placer Volha Mazuronak from Belarus, former Paris Marathon winner Meseret Mengistu from Ethiopia, team-mates Melkam Gizaw and Fantu Jimma and Algeria's Souad Ait Salem.


Others to watch include Souad Ait Salem of Algeria, who has a 2:25:08 best from 2007 and Ethiopia's Fantu Jimma, who clocked a near-personal best of 2:26:53 in Xiamen in January.


The men's course record of 2:07:16 was set by Tadese Tola of Ethiopia in 2013. China's Sun Yingjie set the women's mark of 2:19:39 in 2003.

LONDON, April 18 (Xinhua) -- British Prime Minister Theresa May's shock decision to call a snap general election provoked mixed reactions across Britain on Tuesday.


The surprise move triggers a seven-week countdown to an election on June 8.


Professor of government at the University of Manchester, Colin Talbot Women's Nike Air Force 1 High Green , told Xinhua: "May is trying to make this the Brexit general election to give her a negotiating mandate. The official opposition is trying to avoid the issue, but it will fail to do so and on current polling will lose heavily. So, May will have effectively neutralized Brexit opposition."


Prof. Martin Smith, head of the politics department at the University of York Women's Nike Air Force 1 Low Red , said: "There is a danger that the prime minister's decision to call a snap election may appear both cynical and hypocritical. She had indicated several times that she would not do so and in order to do so she has to shift away from fixed term elections introduced by her predecessor."


"With Labour so weak in the polls, it is an opportunity for the Conservatives to win a landslide victory. With a large Conservative majority, the government will be able to get through any Brexit deal," he added.


However Women's Nike Air Force 1 Low Grey White , Smith warned there are going to be several difficulties for the Conservatives in the election campaign, including the impact on Scotland and the potential for a second referendum.


May faces tough negotiations with European Union leaders over Britain's new role in Europe after last year's referendum vote to leave the EU.


Holding a waver thin majority of just 17 seats in the British House of Commons, May says divisions in parliament are threatening the process of Brexit.


"Our opponents believe that because the government's majority is so small, our resolve will weaken and that they can force us to change course. They are wrong. They underestimate our determination to get the job done and I am not prepared to let them endanger the security of millions of working people across the country Women's Nike Air Force 1 Sage XX Luminous Green ," said May in a quickly called announcement outside 10 Downing Street.


"Every vote for the Conservatives means we can stick to our plan for a stronger Britain and take the right long-term decisions for a more secure future," she said.


May was throwing down the gauntlet to opposition politicians who have threatened to wreck the nation's Brexit ambitions.


Political observers see May's decision as a gamble, but also add this is the best time to call a snap election. Currently, May is more than 20 points ahead in the opinion polls over her main Labour opposition.


In the last general election in 2015 Women's Nike Air Force 1 Reimagined Sage XX All White , the then-prime minister David Cameron emerged with 330 seats, a gain of 28, but still leaving him with only a small majority.


In the same election the two main opposition parties were weakened. Labour lost 24 seats taking its total to 232, while the Liberal Democrats faced an almost total wipeout Women's Nike Air Force 1 Low Jester Violet Mist , losing 48 seats and finishing with just eight MPs in the House of Commons.


The bigger winner in 2015 was the Scottish Nationalist Party (SNP), gaining 50 seats, mainly at the expense of Labour, to finish with 56 seats.


SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon is fighting for an independence referendum in Scotland where the majority of people had backed remaining in the EU in last June's referendum.


Labour Women's Nike Air Force 1 07 LX Summit White , meanwhile, remains a party at war with itself, with many of its MPs estranged from leader Jeremy Corbyn.
