Israel's man in Sunday's marathon that ushered out the 2012 Olympics, Zohar Zemiro, had a bad day in the London heat, finishing 81st in a disappointing 2 hours, 34 minutes and 59 seconds.
Zemiro started the race poorly and soon found himself straggling far behind the leaders. Despite the support of the many thousands who lined the streets of London, he struggled to find his rhythm throughout the 42-kilometer trek and looked particularly shaky as he limped over the finish line.
Medical staff rushed to his attention and took him away for treatment in a wheelchair after he vomited. By press time Zemiro was reported to have been released from medical attention and was said to be recovering.
