Kenyan Eliud Kipchoge breaks world record at Berlin marathon

Kenya's golden outing at Berlin marathon: Kipchoge smashes record, Cherono dazzles

He passed the five kilometre mark in 14:24 and 10km in 29:21.

"It wasn't a plan (running without pacemakers) because I thought I would go with them to 30km but it was unfortunate".

Kipchoge completed half distance in 61:06, leaving him well on course for the record - even though he raced the final 17km without a pacemaker.

The 33-year-old, a three-time victor of the London Marathon, has now won 10 of the 11 marathons he has contested.

The time makes Cherono the fourth-best women's marathoner in history behind only Paula Radcliffe (2:15:25), Mary Keitany (2:17:01), and Tirunesh Dibaba (2:17:56).

Kipchoge became the new world record holder after running 2:01:39 to establish himself as one of the best distance runners in history.

He has now won 11 out of 12 marathons he raced in, including at the Olympics.

We deserved to win". "We should be talking in a different way now because if it was given, it's 2-2 if we score the goal". Firmino then had his goal with 53 minutes play to all but seal the result, with Erik Lamela netting a late consolation.

Once he was alone on Sunday, Kipchoge ended up speeding up. As he he's done in his other major victories, Kipchoge smiled through any signs of pain by the time he hit 40K in 1:55:32.

Top put Kipchoge's new time into context, the last time the marathon world record was beaten by over 30 seconds was when Paul Tergat lowered Khalid Khannouchi's mark to 2:04:26. Instead the remarkable Kenyan retained just enough energy to jump into the arms of his coach and mentor, Patrick Sang.

With his 1:18 demolition of the previous record on Sunday- almost three seconds faster per mile than Kimetto's mark- Kipchoge has now reached a summit that seems befitting of a man who has rarely been challenged in the event. The celebration continued with Kipchoge taking pictures and embracing fans while the next runner would cross the finish line four minutes and 44 seconds later.

He added jokingly; "What next for me now is that I have run 2:00, now 2: 01, next is to run 2:02, so that I have all the times in my arms".

'It was really hard during the last 17 kilometres but I was truly prepared to run my own race.
