Eliud Kipchoge, the current marathon world record holder has just broken the two-hour Marathon barrier. The running world has always though breaking the two hour mark in a marathon to be impossible, but the Kenyan runner has proved everyone wrong, his official time was 1:59:40.
“His official time was 1:59:40.”
