Eliud Kipchoge breaks his own world record at Berlin Marathon, clocks 2:01:09

Kenya’s Eliud Kipchoge has broken a world record, again.

Kipchoge clocked 2:01:09 to beat his own world record and win the Berlin Marathon on Sunday. He shaved 30 seconds off his previous personal best of 2:01:39 recorded in Berlin in 2018.

“Limits are there to be broken. By you and me together,” Kipchoge tweeted after the marathon. “I can say that I am beyond happy today that the official world record is once again faster. Thank you to all the runners in the world that inspire me every day to push myself.”

Defending champion Guye Adola and Ethiopia’s Andamlak Belihu kept pace with the 37-year-old Kipchoge until the 10-kilometer point, which they crossed in 28:23.
