Kenyan Kelvin Kiptum shattered the lads’s marathon world file in Chicago as he beat compatriot Eliud Kipchoge’s earlier mark by greater than 30 seconds.
The 23-year-old completed in a time of two hours 35 seconds.
“I really feel so completely satisfied. A world file was not in my thoughts at the moment,” he stated after beating Kipchoge’s time of two:01.09, set in Berlin in September 2022.
Dutch runner Sifan Hassan set the second-fastest ladies’s time in marathon historical past as she received the feminine occasion.
Her time of two:13:44 is behind solely the file of two:11.53 set by Ethiopia’s Tigst Assefa in Berlin final month.
Kiptum broke the tape three minutes 27 seconds forward of countryman Benson Kipruto, with Belgian Bashir Abdi in third.
It was his third victory in as many begins over 26.2 miles. He triumphed on his debut final December at Valencia after which won the London Marathon in a course file in April.
He waved and blew kisses at spectators earlier than elevating his arms when crossing the end line.
His extraordinary run shaved greater than three minutes off the earlier Chicago Marathon file set by Kenyan Dennis Kimetto in 2013 – and brings nearer the potential of the two-hour barrier being damaged.
“I noticed the time in entrance of me. I felt good inside me, perhaps somewhat adrenaline. I stated let me attempt – perhaps I can run underneath 2:00,” he stated. “I knew in the future I’d be a world-record holder.”
Within the ladies’s race, Hassan completed one minute 53 seconds forward of Kenya’s Ruth Chepngetich, with Ethiopian Alemu Megertu in third.
