Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Kenyan marathon legend smashes own world record (VIDEO)”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Kenyan running icon Eliud Kipchoge won the Berlin Marathon on Sunday and smashed his own world record by 30 seconds, clinching the event with an impressive time of two hours, one minute, and nine seconds.

The 37-year-old set his previous best time in the German capital four years ago, and looked destined to achieve greatness once more after covering the race’s first 10 kilometers in a mere 28 minutes and 23 seconds.

Completing 15 kilometers in 42 minutes, 32 seconds suggested he could finish the race in under two hours, but Kipchoge started to drop off at around 25 kilometers and slowed down at the 30-kilometer mark, which he passed in one hour, 25 minutes, and 40 seconds.

Kipchoge’s pace was too much for defending champion Guye Adola and Ethiopian Andamlak Belihu, who fell away in the second half of the race.
