Kenya’s Eliud Kipchoge clocks 2:01:09 for world record in Berlin Marathon

BERLIN – Two-time Olympic champion Eliud Kipchoge improved his own world record at the Berlin marathon on Sunday.

The Kenyan runner ran 2 hours, 1 minute and 9 seconds to beat his previous best of 2:01:39, set at the same course in 2018, by 30 seconds.

Ethiopia’s Tigist Assefa unexpectedly won the women’s race in a course record of 2:15:37 – 18 minutes faster than ever. It was the third fastest time ever.

The conditions in the German capital were ideal for fast races – cool, around 11 degrees Celsius after a showery night, no more rain and no wind. 45,527 runners from 157 nations were registered for the first Berlin marathon without restrictions since the beginning of the corona pandemic.
