    For the first time in the history of the Haspa Hamburg Marathon an Olympic Marathon champion will be on the start line of the elite field: Stephen Kiprotich will be a star attraction on April 23 in Hamburg. The Ugandan caused a sensation when he surprised the favourites to win the Olympic gold in London in 2012, promoted to sporting superstar status overnight in his home country. A year later Kiprotich added to his tally of gold medals in winning the World Marathon title in Moscow. The 27-year-old continued to show his appetite for championship running by finishing sixth in the 2015 World Championships in Beijing. Meanwhile he also improved his own national record to 2:06:33 when finishing second in the Tokyo Marathon.
