On October 12, 2019, Kenyan Eliud Kipchoge stunned the world by setting a new world time while running a 26.2-mile marathon under two hours in Vienna, Austria with a remarkable time of one hour, fifty-nine minutes and 40 seconds.  Although, it was the fastest time run in a marathon, it did not count as a new world record because of certain regulations.  At the time, the eight-time marathon winner and three-time Olympian crossed a bridge that most thought was uncrossable just a few years earlier.  A little more than a century ago, the record stood at 2:55:18.4 in 1908.  Kipchoge demonstrated once again that the top marathon runners in the world are Kenyans and then Ethiopians. Kenyan long-distance runners literally set the pace on the track that other runners mark as a goal to achieve.  



Kipchoge was born on November 5, 1984, in Kapsisiywa. Nandi County in Kenya.  He and his three siblings were raised by a single mother and teacher (Janet Rotich).  He and his wife Grace Sugutt have three children and live in Eldoret, Kenya.
