Eliud Kipchoge Destroys Marathon World Record By 1 Minute and 18 Seconds

10 monthes ago   |   By

Eliud Kipchoge won the Berlin Marathon on Sunday, and he absolutely demolished the previous world record in the process. The 33-year-old Kenyan finished the race in 2:01:39, which is 1 minute and 18 seconds quicker than the former fastest marathon time. (That was set in 2014, also in Berlin, by Dennis Kimetto).
