Stephen Kiprotich claimed Uganda's's first Olympic athletics gold medal for 40 years, shocking the favoured Kenyan runners to win in 2:08:09. 


Kenyans Abel Kirui and Wilson Kipsang were second and third. 

Shelley was the leading Australian, ahead of Martin Dent (28th in 2:16:29) and Jeff Hunt (63rd in 2:22:59).
