Eliud Kipchoge’s World Record Had Been Ratifies By World Athletics

Eliud Kipchoge's time of two hours, one minute, and nine seconds during the September 2016 Berlin Marathon has been recognized by World Athletics.

Kipchoge shaved 30 seconds off of his earlier world record, which he also set in Berlin in 2018.

With his 10th victory at the World Marathon Majors, Kipchoge became the most successful runner in history.

The 38-year-old Kenyan started off quickly, covering the first five kilometers in 14:14 and the last ten kilometers in 28:22 - easily inside the world record pace and much ahead of the anticipated two-hour finish time.

As he finished, Kipchoge set the seventh consecutive men's marathon world record in Berlin, finishing in 2:01:09.

Letsile Tebogo of Botswana established the world Under-20 100m record in 9.91 seconds at the 2017 World Junior Championships in Cali, Colombia.

Additionally, the Jamaican women's team's 42.59-second world under-20 4x100m record from Colombia has been validated.
