It's almost Olympic Marathon time! Get up to speed on who's in, who's out and who to watch during the race....

Not all athletes are plagued by injuries, although some have to fight battles that seem just as difficult. In the end, winning the battle feels like sweet victory. Esther Obiekwe will make history at the 2012 Women’s Olympic Marathon as the first women to run from Nigeria. Though Obiekwe is a full time banker, she manages to find time for training and has competed at some of the world’s most renown races including, Athens, Berlin, Boston, and Dubai. Obiekwe’s employer, Diamond Bank announced it would be sponsoring Esther’s training kits as well as her travel expenses to London. Obiekwe views her participation as not only a personal achievement, but as one that she will share with all Nigerian women.
