Kenyan athlete and two-time Olympic champion Eluid Kipchoge has broken another world record, and he did so after winning the 2022 Berlin marathon. The 48th edition of the annual marathon race took place on Sunday, September 25, 2022. Eluid won the marathon with an incredible world record of 2:01:09. The runner had enough time to celebrate his win as Kenyan Mark Korir finished four minutes behind to take the second position and Ethiopia’s Tadu Abate finished third.

The 37-year-old athlete has won 15 of his 17 career marathons, including two Olympic triumphs and ten prominent titles. When asked about his victory, the athlete said: “My legs and my body still feel young, but the most important thing is my mind, and that also feels fresh and young. I’m so happy to break the world record.”
