Kenyan Eliud Kipchoge breaks world record at Berlin marathon

Kenya's golden outing at Berlin marathon: Kipchoge smashes record, Cherono dazzles

The 33-year-old, a three-time victor of the London Marathon, has now won 10 of the 11 marathons he has contested.

Kipchoge maintained his form well in the closing stages to smash compatriot Kimetto's previous best.

"It was hard running alone, but I was confident".

In doing so, he becomes the first person to ever run under 2:02:00, in a time that won't be beaten soon.

The marathon had initially given his unofficial time as 2 hours, 1 minute and 40 seconds, then adjusted it by one second.

"They say you can miss it twice but not third time, so I want to thank everyone who has helped me".

You will have to wait for them to visit your website or store later and this can mean they’ve already forgotten about you. If you succeed in creating a memorable business card, you don’t just connect deeper with the person you gave the card to.


The 33-year old who came eight seconds close to breaking the 2:02:57 mark at the London Marathon in 2016 ran a race against the clock nearly the entire race becoming the first man ever to run the marathon under two hours and two minutes, as he achieved a target he had longed for.

He accelerated over the final two kilometres and with his eyes on the finishing line shone the crowd with his infectious smile, striding to cut the tape in a new record time, by a whooping one minute and 18 seconds. Former world record holder Wilson Kipsang of Kenya was considered Kipchoge's biggest challenger and opted to stick with his own pace crew to run 61:30 through the half.

Fellow Kenyan Gladys Cherono won the women's race with a course record and best time of the year of 2:18:10, leaving Ethiopians Ruti Aga and pre-race favourite Tirunesh Dibaba in second and third place respectively.

That 10km time was 23 seconds faster than Dennis Kimetto's world record pace, but Kimetto ran an incredibly fast second half. While trying to shatter the two-hour marathon barrier, Nike devised a plan for Kipchoge to race under optimal conditions where temperatures were almost ideal for the Formula 1 track in Monza, Italy and he could be assisted by an alternating cast of pacers almost every step of the way.

The Newspaper added: "When Kipchoge actually enters a race, he sends ripples through the field before his races even begin". A year ago he set the fastest ever time over the marathon distance on the Monza race track in Italy for Nike's Breaking2 project.
