Kipchoge has just smashed the world record in Berlin, absolute unreal


#1282

Absolutely unbelievable.


#1283

A few more tweaks and natural remedies and it’s only a matter of time until someone will break the two hours


#1284

he was 25 seconds away in Italy for the nike attempt


#1285

Matter of time maybe but still ten years unless an absolute freak arrives on the scene. A long way to go. The artificial attempts will do it if they keep it up but doesn’t count for me.


#1286

Just under 21 km/h average pace.

At that level it really is Super human stuff.


#1287

the way he ran that last 5k was sensational


#1288

He really opened up his legs and expressed himself.


#1289

How far back was the next lad?


#1290

about 3 minutes in it I think


#1291

@Bandage Any progress with the sub 25?


#1292

I just saw a video of the finish there. The bastard wasn’t even out of breath :sweat_smile:


#1293

he has savage drive, his diet and training is unreal


#1294

an awful nice lad too


#1295

How long until 2 hour mark falls?


#1296

15 years, he was averaging 4:38 a mile today


#1297

Not normal.


#1298

he has a very strict diet


#1299

Incredible. What an athlete. He has the speed as well from his early track career over 5,000.


#1300

if i could do 1 mile at 4:38 I would be very happy
