He tries again: a Marathon in under 2 hours

It is no coincidence that Marathon world record holder Eliud Kipchoge announced yesterday, what he considered to be the next ridiculous thing is up to. And it is not by chance, where he talked about The Kenyans want to record it again with the 2-hour barrier, as of 2017, the "Breaking2"project in Monza, as he missed it by 25 seconds. Kipchoge speech in Oxford on the railway, on the Roger Bannister just before reaching 65 years of age, which nobody had thought possible: He ran the mile, the first under 4 minutes.

"Breaking2" means new, "1:59 Challenge", and it is little wonder, then, that Kipchoge wants to try with its 34 years, once again, to make about 42 km the impossible possible. Apparently, he wants to wait until the end of the athletics world Championships at the beginning of October, and then on the 13. to turn somewhere in London his round. Many would rather see it again in Berlin, where he would not perhaps offer the 2 hours, but a further, the Association recognised the world could record (as of 2018 2:01:39).

And Kipchoge has a super potent Partner: With Jim Ratcliffe and his Petro-chemical company Ineos of the 24.5 billion euros, the richest man in Britain behind it. Ratcliffe went last year to the Americas Cup-Team of four-time sailing Olympic gold medallist Ben Ainslie, took over just in Cycling, Team Sky, to go there with the annual glob of 36 million euros, to new triumphs. And: Ratcliffe would not be in accordance with averse to British media seem also to be the owner of Chelsea FC. 2.35 billion euros it would cost him.

Because Next would have to running shoes "-Gen", there is no wind, and a road without hairpin bends for Kipchoge are still there. If only the English rainy weather would not be. (mos)
