London Marathon Holds Moment of Silence to Honor Boston Marathon Tragedy Victims (Video)

Early Sunday morning, Tsegaye Kebede of Ethiopia won the London Marathon for the second time in his career with a time of 2:06.04. However, in terms of the international running and marathon community, that almost seems secondary.

Before the race, the participants held a moment of silence for all of those affected by the Boston Marathon tragedy. The moment began with the shrill cry of a whistle, but for 30 seconds, the mass of people gathered showed their respects, ending it with a rousing cheer.

Check out the nice moment in the video below.
