Eliud Kipchoge runs the fastest Marathon in history

Galena Nuncio | 15 May, 2017, 21:43

"Thank you for lending me your bodies and minds", he said to the pacers who ran with him.

And although Kipchoge missed his target, he did beat the official world record of Dennis Kimetto, who ran the 2014 Berlin Marathon in 2hrs 02mins 57secs - Kipchoge's time however was unofficial. Having now been splashed all over the world's media, these futuristic trainers will soon go on sale to casual runners around the world backed by acres of earned media coverage.

The broadcast included about a dozen 2-minute Nike commercials, but these were not outright promoting gear but documentary-style portraits of the runners and the project.

"Eliud Kipchoge ran 26.2 miles faster than any human ever", Parker said. "That message is really special to me".

Speaking trackside to Britain's Paula Radcliffe, a former three-time victor of the London marathon, Kipchoge said: "I hope next time ... but I can say it's closer (possible) for a human to run under the two-hour mark". The attempt wouldn't have been an official world record, even though the course is IAAF certified.

It wasn't a road race, with runners completing 17.5 laps around the 1.5-mile Monza Formula One track.

All eyes are on Andrew Weaver after Tuesday's wild election seemingly placed the balance of power with his Green Party. Weaver was the last to address the media Wednesday, saying it was too soon to say which party he would support.

Nike planned the record attempt for three years, including making shoes that include a stiff carbon fibre plate created to "propel" runners forward, which it said would make runners 4 per cent more efficient.

"If we're changing the design of shoes to alter the elasticity, then that's something that we've all got to question".

"It'll happen. we're all expecting it, it's just a matter of when".

When Roger Bannister broke the four-minute mile in 1954, the World Record for the Marathon stood at 2:18:34.

"I've been part of many races over my career at Nike". Now it is just 25 seconds.

"It puts running on the map".

Two-time Boston Marathon victor Lelisa Desisa, from Ethiopia, and Eritrean half-marathon world-record holder Zersenay Tadese were also part of the Breaking2 project, which started at 5:45 a.m. local time, but finished well off the pace.

Although he didn't achieve Nike's ambitious goal, the 32-year-old Kipchoge remained optimistic.

Desisa was dropped after 50 minutes with Tadese falling back shortly afterwards, but the duo still completed the marathon, with Tadese shaving almost 4 minutes off his personal best to finish in 2:06:51.

At 26, Desisa is six years Kipchoge's junior, and with a personal best of 2:04:45 to his name, he has the potential to challenge the record books in the future.

His average pace of 4:36 per mile was just not enough, despite his final sprint to the tape. Eliud Kipchoge was 2.

The company hasn't said when its sponsored runners will try again for an under 2-hour race, but its shoes will reach stores later this year. "As a human you are not a machine so you can not go 2.50 exactly, and those micro-seconds really have an effect".

Eurovision finals interrupted by mooning streaker draped in Australian flag
Sekuik was promptly removed from the Eurovision stage by security and the show's three presenters made no mention of the incident. He has been described as " Borat without the wit or satire", and "a reprehensible piece of human garbage ".

Pitsiladis said they want innovations in science to help other athletes, including recreational runners. (Adidas entered the arms-well, legs-race with their own sub2 program not long after Nike, and likewise rolled out carefully engineered marathon shoes created to wring every second of efficiency out of a runner's stride.) To others, Nike's combination of no-holds-barred strategy and scientific innovation smacked of unfairness, if not heavy-handed corporate intervention.
