That’s crazy, but I did a marathon last week and finished 1:58.23 so I think I’m faster

The man is running 20km an hour for the whole race! That is MENTAL! That is my flat out absolute fastest sprint on a treadmill, which I can do for about - oh - 15 seconds?

I'm really confused on why he didn't sprint the last part because he could've got a faster time, and he didn't look like he was gonna die from it

We won't be seeing another sub 2h run for a while because no one with bother with all that gear again and a sub 2 in open competition is several years away. This 1:59:40 is nothing to do with the world record. It's a freaking mind-blowing achievement, it's a big advertising exercise much more than anything else. I hope it gets more people running!

I have a challenge for you and they are that you should try to slip down from a ladder that they do in movies. Good luck

at 9:34 i was wondering what he was saying in his head. probably something in the area of "I got this, i got this".

Wait, sorry if i didn't catch this, did any of his pace keeper get swapped out? Otherwise, didn't they run a sub-2 hour marathon as well?

Unlike this feat (which is astonishing) the 4 minute mile was done under real life conditions. doing this in an official Marathon event is a whole other story, achievable, I think so. Still I am glad I am alive to see a milestone in history like this and by the person who deserved achieving it the most.

He did not break the record as a normal runner. This was set up and staged a bit like the fastest claim on a bike was done whilst riding behind a wind break. One day a Runner will break the 2 hour barrier in a natural way and not a set up fake run like this. When the 2 hour mark is broken by a runner who just runs in a normal race mode then that Runner will be given the title of The First Man to Break the 2 Hour Mark.

"Kipchoge practically sprinted at a 4:26 per hour" So, he was jogging at an average of 4:34 miles per hour?

Am I the only one who thinks Kipchoge was most likely juiced up? As it was an 'unofficial' one man race, meaning that using douping did not harm other competitors' placing, I think it seems very unlikely that in a 'must succeed' event such as this, his sponsors would not have used the finest drugs on him. Until someone runs a sub 2 hrs marathon in an official race, the milestone remains to be unbroken
