Eliud Kipchoge Becomes First Athlete To Complete Marathon In Under Two Hours

Eliud Kipchoge Becomes First Athlete To Complete Marathon In Under Two Hours

Eliud Kipchoge has become the first ever person to run a marathon in under two hours.

The Kenyan athlete recorded an incredible time of one hour, 59 minutes and 40 seconds.

The Olympian took on the 1:59 Ineos Challenge in Vienna but because it's not an open competition he won't earn himself a world record - but don't feel too bad for him, because he already holds the current world record after he took on the Berlin Marathon and finished in 2:01:39.

A delighted Kipchoge said: "I am feeling good. After Roger Bannister in 1954 it took another 63 years, I tried and I did not get it - 65 years, I am the first man - I want to inspire many people, that no human is limited.

"Absolutely remember the 41 pacemakers are among the best athletes ever in the world.

Speaking to the BBC before he took on the challenge, Kipchoge said: "That run in Berlin and this run in Vienna are two different things.

"Berlin was running and breaking a world record - Vienna is running and making history, like the first man to go to the moon.

"I am trying to stay as calm as possible."
