“Limits are there to be broken. By you and me together.” And that’s exactly what Eliud Kipchoge did today. The Kenyan runner broke his own world record by running a 2:01:09-hour marathon in Berlin. His previous world record – run during the same race in 2019 – was 2:01:39 hours.
“I can say that I am beyond happy today that the official world record is once again faster. Thank you to all the runners in the world that inspire me every day to push myself, whereby I hope this result will inspire you to break your own limits. Whether that is your first run, a new personal best and anything in between. Believe that with the right heart and mind, you can achieve greatness in all of life”, Kipchoge stated after his race.
