Eliud Kipchoge Sets Fastest Ever Marathon Time In Berlin?

The Berlin Marathon set another history when Eliud Kipchoge set a new marathon world record.  The  record has now been broken at the Berlin Marathon seven times since 2003.

 Kipchoge becomes the fifth Kenyan to hold the world record in the long distance event, with the last four men to hold the record time hailing from Kenya.

 

The 26-mile course was ran in an incredible to 2 hours, one minute and 39 seconds. The amazing pace is one minute, 18 seconds faster than the previous world record held by fellow countryman Dennis Kimetto, former winner of the Tokyo and Chicago Marathons.

The 33-year-old said afterwards “I lack words to describe this day.”  He won gold in the marathon at the 2016 Olympics and has also won the London marathon three times.
