Berlin is as close as you’ll find to that. He took more than a minute off the WR there last year which was the most it’s dropped in about 50 years.Problem with doing it in a timed official event is you need the right course, right conditions and optimised training.
Oh aye. Totally agree. It's still someone running a marathon in under 2 hours. Fucking incredible if he can do it.Berlin is as close as you’ll find to that. He took more than a minute off the WR there last year which was the most it’s dropped in about 50 years.
If he was trying to do this sort of thing having not won major races etc I’d think it was daft but anyone trying to push boundaries to see what they are capable of gets my vote.
Not yet no, either September or October but place TBC. It’s not Nike backed this time it’s the fella who’s just bought Team Sky out who’s looking after the attempt.Yes I think he will too. I haven't read the article. Have they said where it will be?
It will only show his unassisted WR which I think is a shame.Well, I can dream that someone actually gains a record honestly.
Understood, but the record books should list assisted and unassited records.
Okay, but subject to my above comment.
I did a half marathon under 2 hours and I thought I was going to die. So fair play.Eliud Kipchoge: London Marathon winner to attempt to break two-hour barrier
Kipchoge fancies another go at it, can’t wrap my head round being able to move that fast for one mile never mind 26!
