On September 25, Eliud Kipchoge ran the Berlin Marathon and won with a time of 2:01:09, shattering his own world mark from the previous run. The Kenyan runner has now broken the official men’s world record in the race that takes place in the capital city of Germany on two separate occasions. Kipchoge’s previous best performance in an official 42.2 kilometer race was a time of 2:01:39, which he set in 2018 on the same route. Tigist Assefa of Ethiopia set a new record for the women’s competition with a time of 2:15:37, which is the third fastest time ever recorded.

 

Still,  the greatest marathoner of all time now thinks he can improve his time. “My legs and my body still feel young,” the 37-year-old Kipchoge said. “But the most important thing is my mind, and that also feels fresh and young. I’m so happy to break the world record.”

 

It is generally agreed that Kipchoge is the best marathon runner in the world at the present time. In 2019, he broke a record that had been regarded to be unreachable for a long time by completing a marathon in under two hours in Vienna. The outcome made him a legend not only inside the running world but also beyond it. The result wasn’t legitimate because he ran it in laboratory conditions; yet, the outcome made him a legend. Kipchoge’s performance in Berlin was so dominant that as he crossed the finish line, he had time to embrace his coach and friends, pose for photographs, and wave the Kenyan flag before the runner who finished in second place did so four minutes and 49 seconds later. Kipchoge set a new world record in Berlin.
