'Fast Finishing Farah Wins Fourth London 10,000 Title'

Almost simultaneously with the BUPA London 10,000, defending Ottawa Marathon champion Laban Moiben (Kenya) ran 2:09:13 to break Fujiwara's 2010 CR by 21 seconds.  Moiben was the runner-up behind Fujiwara by 10 seconds in 2010.  Ottawa was the only world-class marathon to have a CR held by a Japanese man.  Note that the IAAF story on Moiben's CR incorrectly reports Fujiwara's old CR as 2:09:44, which was Moiben's time in that race, rather than as 2:09:34.
