Geoffrey Mutai Runs Fastest Marathon Ever

Kenyan Geoffrey Mutai won the Boston Marathon on Monday, finishing in 2 hours, 3 minutes, 2 seconds, the fastest 26.2 miles in history.

But, alas, there's a catch: Even though Mutai beat the previous record by 57 seconds, because there was a strong tailwind on a downhill course, Mutai's time won't be recognized. In fact, 2011 Boston Marathon runner-up and fellow-Kenyan Moses Mosop also surpassed the world record, finishing only four seconds behind Mutai.

Mayer spent hours with the brown-and-white cow, teaching it how to run, jump hurdles and respond to commands like "go," "stand" and "gallop." The massive cow can even be ridden with a saddle.

Soccer Goalie Sues Other Soccer Goalie for ‘Muppet Show’ Insult

Jens Lehman and Tim Wiese are two of the better soccer goalkeepers in the world, having both represented Germany in international competition.

There, he discovered a corked German beer bottle with a piece of paper inside. Fortunately, Korotkikh's father was able to read German and translated the message.
