Interview: We chat to Chris Thompson about his his potential to produce even better performances over the marathon than on the track

Great Britain's Chris Thompson has been one of the country's best long-distance runners over the past decade. Despite persistent injuries impacting his progress and consistency, the 2010 European Championship silver medallist (behind Mo Farah), has still managed to achieve impressive PB times including 13:11.51 (5000m), 27:27.36 (10,000m) and 1:01:00 (half marathon).

Chris made his debut at the marathon distance at the 2014 Virgin London Marathon, finishing 11th overall in a time of 2:11:19. That proved to be the second fastest British time of the season.

Though not running the 2015 event, we chatted to Chris at the recent Virgin Money London Marathon Expo to find out more about his future plans for the marathon and why he thinks he has the potential to produce even better performances over the marathon than he has on the track - included the realistic potential of medals at World and Olympic level.
