Craig Mottram wants to create history by competing in his fifth Olympic Games in Rio.
One of Australia’s greatest middle-distance runners is stepping up to the marathon for the first time and will seek Olympic qualification at the London Marathon on April 24.
While many thought the 35-year-old had hung up his running shoes, Mottram has been quietly building over the past six months.
“I actually never retired,” Mottram says.
“It was always that I no longer wanted to race on the track anymore but I have always kept in touch with the road.
“I just wanted to work on other areas in my life; family and business.
