Kenenisa Bekele targeting world-record time in London Marathon

• Ethiopian has privately asked pacemakers to take him to halfway in 61:20• Mary Keitany the women’s favourite but faces high-pedigree competitionKenenisa Bekele wants to cement his reputation as the greatest distance runner of all time by breaking the world marathon record in London on Sunday. While the Ethiopian has publicly played down his chances of breaking Dennis Kimetto’s mark of 2hr 2min 57sec, set in Berlin in 2014, the Observer has learned that he has asked race organisers for pacemakers to bring him to halfway in around 61:30 – on world-record pace.The 34-year-old holds the 5,000m and 10,000m world records, as well as eight Olympic and world titles, and is hopeful of adding the marathon record to that list having recovered from back, calf and hip injuries sustained when he was trampled by runners after a fall at the start of the Dubai marathon in January.

My workout: ‘Passions run high in water polo’

Jack Pickford, 20, on why he loves the fast-paced water sportMy twin, Peter, and I joined Watford swimming club when we were seven or eight. The water polo club used to train directly after our swimming sessions, so one day we stayed behind and joined in. It was so varied and dynamic, and I was immediately drawn to the team nature of the sport, as opposed to just repetitively swimming lengths. Ten years on, Peter has been selected for the England squad, and I’m president of the University of Warwick water polo club.Water polo is an aquatic version of handball; you score goals by throwing the ball into the opposition’s net. Each team has seven players in the water and, other than the goalkeeper, everyone attacks and everyone defends. Each team gets only 30 seconds to attack before the other is given the ball, so every 30 seconds you’re sprinting the length of the pool. It’s incredibly fast-paced, intense and tiring.

Existing Home Sales Soar To 10-Year Highs

Following February's 3.9% drop, March existing home sales roared back (up 4.4% MoM - the fastest growth since Dec 2015) to the highest since Feb 2007 at 5.71 million SAAR. Inventories tumbled (for the 22nd month in a row) and prices rose (for the 61st month in a row) as affordability issues remain ignored (for now). It seems, unlike 2013, that rising rates are not affecting demand for existing homes at all... (yet) The Details March sales rose in three of four regions, including a 3.4 percent increase in the South and a 1.6 percent drop in the West At the current pace, it would take 3.8 months to sell the homes on the market, unchanged from February; Realtors group considers less than a five months’ supply as consistent with a tight market Single-family home sales increased 4.3 percent last month to an annual rate of 5.08 million Purchases of condominium and co-op units rose 5 percent to a 630,000 pace First-time buyers accounted for 32 percent of all sales in March, unchanged from February Homes sold in 34 days, compared with 45 days in February and 47 days in March 2016 The median existing-home price for all housing types in March was $236,400, up 6.8 percent from March 2016 ($221,400). March's price increase marks the 61st consecutive month of year-over-year gains.   With the high-end dominating the price appreciation... Inventory of available properties fell 6.6 percent from March 2016 to 1.83 million, marking the 22nd straight year-over-year decline. “This is a very broad-based recovery” in the housing market, Lawrence Yun, NAR’s chief economist, said at a press briefing accompanying the report.   “Both sales as well as prices are running very solidly,” and “buyers are not being deterred by these affordability challenges.”   Policy changes could “quickly change” the direction of housing in the second half, he said.

NAR: "Existing-Home Sales Jumped 4.4% in March"

From the NAR: Existing-Home Sales Jumped 4.4% in MarchTotal existing-home sales, which are completed transactions that include single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums and co-ops, ascended 4.4 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.71 million in March from a downwardly revised 5.47 million in February. March's sales pace is 5.9 percent above a year ago and surpasses January as the strongest month of sales since February 2007 (5.79 million).Total housing inventory at the end of March increased 5.8 percent to 1.83 million existing homes available for sale, but is still 6.6 percent lower than a year ago (1.96 million) and has fallen year-over-year for 22 straight months. Unsold inventory is at a 3.8-month supply at the current sales pace (unchanged from February). emphasis addedClick on graph for larger image.This graph shows existing home sales, on a Seasonally Adjusted Annual Rate (SAAR) basis since 1993. Sales in March (5.71 million SAAR) were 4.4% higher than last month, and were 5.9% above the March 2016 rate.The second graph shows nationwide inventory for existing homes.According to the NAR, inventory increased to 1.83 million in March from 1.75 million in February.   Headline inventory is not seasonally adjusted, and inventory usually decreases to the seasonal lows in December and January, and peaks in mid-to-late summer.The last graph shows the year-over-year (YoY) change in reported existing home inventory and months-of-supply. Since inventory is not seasonally adjusted, it really helps to look at the YoY change. Note: Months-of-supply is based on the seasonally adjusted sales and not seasonally adjusted inventory. Inventory decreased 6.6% year-over-year in March compared to March 2016.   Months of supply was at 3.8 months in March. This was above consensus expectations. For existing home sales, a key number is inventory - and inventory is still low. I'll have more later ...
