History Made: Eliud Kipchoge ends marathon Race in two hours
Eliud Kipchoge became the first athlete to run a marathon in less than two hours, beating the mark in 20 seconds, reports MySportDab.
The 34-year-old Kenyan traveled 42.2 km in one hour, 59 minutes and 40 seconds at the 1:59 Ineos Challenge in Vienna, Austria on Saturday.
He will not be recognized as the official marathon world record as he was not in open competition and was using a team of rotating stimulators.
"It shows that no one is limited," said Kipchoge.
"Now, I did it, I hope more people will do it after me."
