This Sunday in Berlin, Eliud Kipchoge broke his own marathon world record.
Historic day in the history of the Marathon! For the 48th edition of the Berlin Marathon which was held this Sunday in the streets of the German capital, the Kenyan runner Eliud Kipchoge largely imposed itself but above all broke its own world record, bringing it even closer to the 2 hour mark.

In 2018, also in Berlin, he climbed to first place in the best performance in history by completing the 42 kilometers in 2:01:39. Four years later, the double Olympic champion confirms his unchallenged domination of the discipline by beating his own record by 30 seconds, for a time of 2:01:09. He now holds 4 of the 5 best performances in the history of the marathon.
