from @shaunking – It’s hard to explain to Americans who don’t follow marathons just how huge of a deal this is. @kipchogeeliud is thought by many to be the greatest athlete to ever live. And this morning, he did what many thought would never happen, he ran a full marathon in under 2 hours, demolishing all records. It would be akin to someone in the NBA scoring 100 points again in the modern era or a team going 82-0. It’s a huge deal. // FYI: the runners behind him weren’t actual marathoners. They were pace setters and encouragers who would switch out to keep him on pace to break the record!
from @cnnafrica – History is made as Kenya’s Eliud Kipchoge becomes the first person to run a marathon in under two hours⠀
“I am the happiest man,” Kipchoge said after the unofficial two-hour marathon, adding that he hopes to have inspired many that “no human is limited.“⠀ ⠀
