Meet Eliud Kipchoge's Little Known Wife and Adorable Children (Photos)

The greatest marathon runner of all time is Eliud Kipchoge. He has broken world records and inspired athletes far beyond Africa's borders. Much has been said and written about him, but few people know who the woman who has stood by his side for nearly fifteen years is.

Grace Sugutt is Eliud Kipchoge's little-known and media-shy wife, who rose to prominence after welcoming her husband with open arms after his INEOS 1: 59: 40: 2 record-breaking performance in the INEOS 1: 59 Challenge. Grace has previously stated that she wishes to be known as "the force behind the force."

Because she is a devout Catholic, she was quoted in the media as saying she fasted for seven days before the Berlin Marathon.

"I'd like to congratulate my husband on another world record time. For the previous week, I had been praying and fasting for a miracle. I'm glad to see victory return "She told the Daily Nation about it.

Grace and Eliud were both classmates and neighbors. Her brother Amos was Eliud's friend. She fell in love with him when she was 19 years old. They decided to marry for life after a year of dating and a traditional wedding.

Lynne, the couple's first child, was born soon after their wedding. Griffin took the stage first, followed by Gordon. The couple instilled in their children the importance of education and humility.
