Welcome to Wednesday on Morning Brew. After 11 today we’ll find out about this weekend’s China Coast Marathon. Along with organiser Colin Whittington, we meet legendary marathon runner Rod Dixon. Rod is probably best remembered for winning the 1983 New York City Marathon, where at half way he was over two minutes behind the leaders. Among many other accolades, at the age of 21 Rod won a bronze medal in the 1500m at the 1972 Olympics in Munich. After 11.30 RTL France’s Hong Kong Correspondent Philippe Dova returns. Fresh from his trip to Japan covering the Carlos Ghosn case he’ll bring us more stories and his usual taste of musical France. The Pilates Athlete Jason Clark is still away converting the world, so at 12.40 we welcome back Mr. Motion Dynamics Chris Watts, who’s just discovered the world of endurance motor sport.
