Eliud Kipchoge EGH is a Kenyan professional long-distance runner who competes in the marathon and formerly competed at a 5000-meter distance. He is now the third man in history to win back-to-back Olympic gold medals in the marathon. He lost two out of the 17 times he has run in over 8 years. He is the Marathon's world record holder and the only person in the world to run a marathon under 2hours.

Thank you us all royal Kenyans who have always stand by him all this time. He has performed incredibly well and inspired many people not only in Kenya but also in the world at large.This is his royal message after the win.

"The Olympic dream is very special. For every athlete here it has taken a lifetime of preparation to get to this point. Today it is my Olympic dream. I always say that sort is like life, whereby you can win or lose. Bt today was the day where I won and get to say that I successfully defended my Olympic title.

I want to share thanks to the people of Japan and the Olympic organization for doing an incredible job in making this Olympics happen. Thank you to the fans around the world for all your support not only this year but also throughout my entire career, you make me speechless and humbled.

Thank you to my teammates, coaches, partners, management, friends, and family. This gold is for us all. A running world is a happy world.#NoHumanIsLimited".

Thanks to Eliud for this glory to our wonderful blessed country Kenya.
