Are Gillis and Coolsaet London Bound in 2012?

Sunday’s Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon was arguably the most hyped marathon ever on Canadian soil. Did it live up to the hype? It sure did. Coolsaet set out at a blazing pace coming through the half way point in 1:03:58, just narrowly missing the Canadian Marathon Record at the finish line while his training partner, Eric Gillis slipped under the Canadian Olympic Qualifying Standard by 1 second. Furthermore, the official gun time had the first and second place finishers separated by .3 after 42.2 kilometers of racing. What more could we ask for? How about a 100 year old man completing the marathon!?! It was truly a day that will go down in history as the best Canadian Marathon of all time. Alan Brookes and The Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon Team should be proud. With all that said, several media outlets reported that Coolsaet and Gillis should book their flights to London.
