The morning after winning the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON for the second time in three years, Eliud Kipchoge was in reflective mood. Looking back on Sunday’s race which produced more than its fair share of surprises, he offered his assessment on the upsets provided by the event’s 44thedition: “Planning to run a marathon is like life, anything can happen. You can run fast today and tomorrow you run slow.”
Eliud Kipchoge confirmed his position as the world’s number one marathon runner by taking a dramatic win in the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON. The Kenyan clocked a world leading time of 2:03:32 after coming from behind. In difficult weather conditions with rain and high humidity the world record set by Kenya’s Dennis Kimetto in Berlin in 2014 with 2:02:57 was out of reach in the final part of the race. However Kipchoge can add another superlative to his collection: No one has ever run faster in such conditions. The 32 year-old clocked a „rain world record“ in Berlin on Sunday.
