Two times Olympic champion, Eliud Kipchoge insists that he can get even faster after smashing his own marathon world record at the Berlin Marathon in Germany.
The 37 year-old took of all time took half a minute off his previous mark to win his fourth Berlin title in 2:01.09.
“There is still more in my legs and I still have a future career,” He warned. “My mind is still moving and the body is still absorbing the training. No limitations.”
Kipchoge now boasts four of the five fastest marathon times in history and has won 15 of his career races over 26.2 miles. He also ran 1:59:40 for the marathon distance at an exhibition in Vienna in 2019.
The G.O.A.T went through 10K in 28:23 and reached halfway in 59:51 but such a scorching early pace cost him his chance of a first official sub two-hour time.
“The truth is I am getting on a bit and sometimes your body doesn’t allow you to do things,” he said.
Kipchoge’s time in Berlin served as a reminder of the gap between Farah, with his 2:05.11 British record, and the top end.
