Kenyan runner Eliud Kipchoge has become the first man to run a marathon in under two hours, in a feat some previously thought was impossible. Kipchoge completed the specially-designed course at the INEOS 1:59 Challenge in Vienna in a time of one hour, 59 minutes and 40 seconds. The feat won’t count as an official world record because of certain strategies used, including the way Kipchoge was paced. Despite that, the Kenyan said he hoped his effort would inspire others to run faster.
