LONDON — The last two winners of the London Marathon, Kenyan rivals Wilson Kipsang and Eliud Kipchoge, will return for another shot at the title in April.

In a sprint finish last year, two-time champion Kipsang was beaten by Kipchoge.

Another Kenyan, world-record holder Dennis Kimetto, will look to improve on last year's third-place finish when he also comes back to London for the race on April 24.

Ethiopian great Kenenisa Bekele and world champion Ghirmay Ghebreslassie of Eritrea will also be on the field.
