London Marathon: Kipchoge⚡ and Brigid Kosgei Win🎉 Men and Women's Elite Races

  |   Kenya News

Kenyan athlete Eliud Kipchoge stormed to victory in the London Marathon Sunday to become the first man to win the event four times and set a new course record in the process.

The women’s race was won by Brigid Kosgei in a speedy 2hr 18min 20sec. That time was even more impressive given a torpid first 10 miles. The Kenyan is only 25 and the way she blitzed clear of last year’s winner Vivian Cheruyiot, who was second this time, suggests she can go much quicker.

It's the latest achievement for arguably the greatest marathon runner in history -- his time of two hours, two minutes and 37 seconds is the second fastest marathon of all time.
The rest of the field simply couldn't handle the pace as Kipchoge put his foot down at the halfway mark and then again with just over a mile left to run.
His time was slightly off his own world record pace of two hours, one minute and 39 seconds -- which he set at the Berlin Marathon in 2018.
