Eliud Kipchoge sets new world record in Berlin Marathon win

Eliud Kipchoge crosses the line to win the 45th Berlin Marathon and set a new world record in the process

Olympic champion Eliud Kipchoge has set a new marathon world record, winning the Berlin race in 2 hours, 1 minute and 39 seconds on Sunday.

By the half way mark, Kipchoge had completely imposed himself on the race with chasing compatriot Wilson Kipsang and Amos Kipruto nowhere in sight.

Similarly astonishing is the speed at which Kipchoge ran the second-half of the race specifically.

"The last pacesetter went out at 25km mark but that still inspired me to continue pushing alone", explained Kipchoge adding that he shall defend his title perhaps with another new record next year.

Kipchoge's run was the biggest improvement on the marathon mark since Australian Derek Clayton took nearly two and a half minutes off the record in 1967. It certainly will go down as one of greatest spectacles the sport of running has ever seen, and will likely be a record that will stand for many years to come in the marathon.

Price is probably the biggest consideration for most people, and the iPhone XR has the iPhone XS beat in terms of price. Apple also finally fixed the messy notifications with the new iOS 12 by introducing grouped notifications.


"I had great belief that I could achieve this feat and running a sub 2 hours two minutes was simply fantastic and I believe I can still go below that with such good conditions", said Kipchoge, adding that he could have posted better times if he went with the pacesetters up to 30km mark.

At long last, the missing piece from Eliud Kipchoge's incredible résumé has been filled.

Kipchoge won his marathon debut in Hamburg in the spring of 2013 running 2:05:30.

Most observers feared that had left Kipchoge's hopes of a world record in the balance.

He kept injecting the pace and by the 30km mark, he was a massive 52 seconds inside World Record pace having covered the distance in a time of 1:26:45. Past year he set the fastest ever time over the marathon distance on the Monza race track in Italy for Nike's Breaking2 project.

Kipchoge's Sunday record put him well ahead the runner-up Amos Kipruto, who finished the race in 2:06:23, and the third-placed Wilson Kipsang with 2:06:48.

"I lack words to describe this day", said a beaming Kipchoge, a former world champion over 5,000-metres and marathon gold medallist at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics in 2016.

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

But Kipchoge produced a stunning performance to take it by a clear 78 seconds.
