Eliud Kipchoge sets new marathon world record.
Kenyan runner Eliud Kipchoge made history on September 16, by winning the Berlin Marathon in 2 hours 1 minute 39 seconds, confirming that is one of the best runner of the modern era.
The Olympic champion broke the record set by fellow Kenyan Dennis Kimetto in 2014 by 1 minute and 18 seconds.
After the race, Kipchoge, who also won in 2016 and 2017, said: "I lack words to describe this day.
"I am really grateful, happy to smash the world record. "They say you can miss it twice but not third time, so I want to thank everyone who has helped me."
The 33-year-old is widely seen as the greatest marathon runner of the modern era and showed his class as he pulled ahead of his competitors early in the race.
