"Congratulations Eliud Kipchoge for breaking the world record at the Berlin marathon 2018".
Kenya's long-distance runner Eliud Kipchoge produced an astonishing run to break the men's world marathon record in Berlin.
Attracting attention from all over the athletics world, Kipchoge's achievement is already being spoken of in the highest terms.
The Olympic champion broke the record set by fellow Kenyan Dennis Kimetto in 2014 by 1 minute and 18 seconds. Just after the 15K mark, pacers started dropping off. Kipchoge was left with Josphat Boit, who owns a personal best of 59:19 for the half marathon, as his lone rabbit.
He has now won 11 out of 12 marathons he raced in, including at the Olympics.
Kipchoge ran his first 5km in 14:24, a whole 1:26 ahead of world record pace, and reached 10km in 29:01. Just think of that next time you head out for a morning run.
Amos Kipruto of Kenya was second in 2:06:23 with Kenya's Wilson Kipsang, the former world record holder, third in 2:06:48.
Things looked to have fallen apart for Kipchoge's world record hopes after 15km.
"It's a breathless leap in the world of marathon running", said one excited commentator as Kipchoge passed 40km in 1:55:32.
Race organizers initially timed Kipchoge a second slower but later corrected the time.
Speaking post-race, Kipchoge was all but beyond words; "I lack words to describe this day".
"They say you can miss it twice but not a third time".
"It was hard", Kipchoge said. It certainly will go down as one of greatest spectacles the sport of running has ever seen, and will likely be a record that will stand for many years to come in the marathon. He has been virtually unbeatable at the distance, winning 10 of 11 marathons he has entered.
Kipchoge will be rewarded with a total sum of €120,000 ($139,614) for his performance on Sunday, including a €50,000 bonus for the world record, a €40,000 for coming first, and €30,000 bonus for keeping his time below two hours and four minutes.
