'Iron man' quits

JAPANESE marathon runner Keizo Yamada has hung up his sneakers at the grand old age of 81. Yamada, who represented Japan at the 1952 Helsinki Olympics and won the Boston Marathon the following year, said the time was right for him to "scale back" on his running.

Yamada ran three marathons this year, including his 19th appearance in Boston.
