    Marathon runner Deena Kastor, bronze medallist of the Olympic race in 2004 and winner of London in 2006 with an American women’s record of 2:19:36 which remained the fastest time of the year, has successfully been treated for skin cancer.

    As revealed on her web page  – http://www.deenakastor.com – three spots on her body were identified, and after the cancerous areas were successfully and completely removed Kastor recently wrote on her webpage: “What a relief!”.

    Kastor ran the Boston Marathon in April but there was no luck for her in that race, when she suffered period pains. Having been one of the big favourites she had to be content with fifth place in 2:35:09, though still won the US championship in Boston.
