  • By Mario Fraioli
  • Published Nov. 2, 2010

Meb Keflezighi is back to defend his New York City Marathon title on Sunday but he’ll have his work cut out for him when he lines up against perhaps the deepest men’s field ever assembled in the history of the race. Can Meb repeat in the Big Apple? Or will world-record holder Haile Gebrselassie prove to the pundits that he can win on a course not know for world records? Maybe reigning world champion Abel Kirui stake his claim that he is indeed best marathoner on the planet, or perhaps a guy like Dathan Ritzenhein will finally have a marathon worth remembering. Let us know who you think will pull out the win on Sunday in our poll!
