Photographer's Note

The leading group of athletes in today's Mens Marathon at the Commonwealth Games as they run past a water station in Pollok Park en route to the finish at Glasgow Green.

The athlete on the furthest left of this shot, Michael Shelley of Australia, went on to win the gold medal in a time of 2 hours 11 minutes 15 seconds. This was the first time in 20 years that the race had been won from an athlete from outside of Africa. No doubt a sweet victory for Shelley as he had taken the silver medal at the last games four years ago.
