Man Attempts to make History This Weekend
The greatest marathoner ever is taking his second shot at history this weekend.


In his all-conquering career, it’s the final, elusive frontier—an impossible dream that Eliud Kipchoge will now try to make a reality.

The 34-year-old has done it all—Olympic gold, world title, the marathon world record—but there is one thing he has yet to tick off his bucket list: a sub-two-hour marathon.

“Many ideologies [have] been going that no human will break the two-hour mark but personally, I have dared to try,” Kipchoge


“I am doing it to make history.”



He is, without question, the greatest marathoner of all time, but in a park in Vienna, Austria, on Saturday, Kipchoge will aim for immortality. The start time for the event will be 8:15 a.m. in Vienna; 2:15 a.m. ET.------

Good luck to the guy. I don't see it happening and it would have to be a fairly flat course to beat 2 hours. That's an amazingly fast time.

.
Remember when breaking 4 minutes for a mile was the gold standard for running the mile? This sub 2 hour marathon would be a pace of 4:34 per mile for 26 miles.

Most of us couldn't run 1 mile in 4:34.

He did it!


1:59:40! Eliud Kipchoge makes history as he shatters two-hour marathon barrier in Vienna by 20 SECONDS using LASER guidance, 41 pace-makers and groundbreaking shoes

Amid jubilant scenes in Vienna on Saturday morning, Eliud Kipchoge became the first runner to finish a marathon in under two hours.

The 34-year-old Kenyan completed the course in Vienna, in an incredible one hour, 59 minutes and 40 seconds.

He celebrated with his arms outstretched and waved to the crowds as he sprinted over the line before he was greeted by a loving embrace from his wife Grace.

Congrats!

the avg. fit person could probably run the mile in around 6-7 min.

4:30 is very very fast. in typical US high schools only a few dudes would get that time

I felt he could do it because already he came very close at Italy. He seems like good people and I'm happy for his victory!






"Kipchoge beat his chest with both hands as he crossed the line in what was—for the mild-mannered, soft-spoken Kenyan—a rare moment of bravado. Then he kept on running, into the arms of his wife, Grace, who spun him around in a joyous circle."

RE: Man Attempts to make History This Weekend
I would like to say that I have African friends and have visited Kenya and met good people there, not just some rich affluents but regular people I met walking about in the city.

"some" people talk trash about Africa but it has character!
