 Elle a battu le record de Paula Radcliffe d’il ya 16 ans de 81 secondes! ⠀
 Brigid: «Je n'arrêtais pas de dire:« Demain est mon jour.  Je voulais être le deuxième Kipchoge - le Kipchoge pour les femmes.  Je me suis concentré sur ça. ⠀ «Je ne m'y attendais pas.  Je m'attendais à courir 2:16 ou 2:17.  C'est incroyable de courir 2:14, mais le record du monde était dans ma tête.  Quand j'ai commencé la course, je pensais qu'il me fallait 2h15 pour le record de Paula. " ⠀

Good morning BBC friend ?? Enter the London London Marathon.

Kenyan Eliud Kipchoge has won the London Marathon for the fourth time in a row.

Ethiopians Mosinet Geremew and Mule Wasihun finished in second and third place behind Kipchoge, who missed his own World Record record in 59 seconds which grew 2:01:39.
Englishman Mo Farah took fifth place after finishing 3 minutes and one second behind Kipchoge, while Englishman Callum Hawkins finished in 10th place.

Another Kenyan Brigid Kosgei, 25, won the race on the ladder and became the first female to win the London marathon on the women's side.

  • This is just the beginning I'm ready to do more, because I'm not limited.

Back in April, Brigid Kosgei surpassed her competition and won the woman’s title at the London Marathon, with a finishing time of 2:18:14 - only a few minutes behind the men’s title winner. To put all that into perspective, the average finishing time is between 4 and 5 hours. Runners like Brigid defy perceived limits and show us that we can push harder.

Running a marathon takes dicipline. beyond the physical training, you first have to get to a point in your mind where it even seems possible.

GumboFIT is excited to officially announce that we’ll be running with @nikerunning for the 2019 Chicago Marathon. Follow us along our training journey as we push ourself past perceived limits and support one another to the finish line🏅

  • WORLD RECORD!!!
When you believe, you can.
.

And the 2 hour barrier for women fell too! Yes, Paula Radcliffe's mark was like this watershed, in my opinion (2:15:25). And today, Brigid Kosgei destroyed that barrier. With a shocking start, passing the first 5km under 16 minutes and generating a prediction of 2:10:00. The pace dropped, but not enough to take away from her this amazing feat. The smile of the finish line said she knew what she had done! .

Brigid Kosgei, Chicago Marathon Bi-Champion and World Record holder: 2:14:04, pace of 3'11 per km. Brutal!!!

Simone Biles @simonebiles won gold medals in the individual floor and balance beam competitions, bringing her Worlds career medal total to 25. That means she is now officially the G.O.A.T. becoming the most decorated #gymnast—male or female—in history.

Coco Gauff @cocogauff the 15-year-old #tennis star, celebrated her first professional title at a WTA tournament in Austria. The win makes her the youngest player to accomplish such a feat in 15 years—and she's only just getting started.

Brigid Kosgei won the #Chicago #Marathon for the second year in a row and totally shattered a world record in the process. She finished the 26.2 mile race in just 2 hours, 14 minutes and 4 seconds—81 seconds faster than the women's world marathon record set 16 years ago by Paula Radcliffe.

  • Eliud Kipchoge has become the first person to run a marathon in under two hours, breaking the totemic milestone by 20 seconds.
.
A previous effort by the Kenyan runner two years ago fell short by 25 seconds, but on Saturday in Vienna he finished in 01:59:40.
.
It's a historic achievement that shows how far and fast sports science has come. “Many of the leading scientists didn’t really see [a sub-two hour marathon] happening for the next couple of years,” says Stephen Mears @lborouniversity.
.
The marathon record was just under three hours at the start of the twentieth century, but that quickly fell in the following decades due to improvements in technology, training and nutrition, says Mears. Roger Bannister broke the 4-minute mile in part because of interval training, for example.
.
“And then,” says Mears, “you get a once in a lifetime athlete like Kipchoge.” He has superb VO2 max – the maximum amount of oxygen the body can take on – and exceptional running economy, meaning he uses energy extremely efficiently.
.
Kipchoge’s second effort at sub-two hours involved small improvements to many different aspects of the race, says Mears. The formation of pacers around him was precisely tweaked, the car slightly further ahead than before. The drinking strategy was different, the weather better, the course flatter, his shoes slightly modified — and this time there was a supporting crowd.
.
There’s also probably a psychological aspect, Mears adds. Before Kipchoge’s 2017 attempt his previous record was more than two minutes off the two-hour mark.
.
It’s more likely now that the sub two-hour mark will be hit in a race, says Mears, who thinks humans can go faster still over the iconic marathon distance: marginal gains in technology, including athlete’s shoes, nutrition and physiology, will all help. “I think we can go quicker,” says Mears.
.
Kipchoge’s feat was not the only running milestone this weekend. Kenya’s Brigid Kosgei set a women’s world record of 02:14:04, beating the previous record set in 2003.

  • The moment Brigid Kosgei breaking the Women’s World Record in the marathon in 2:14:04!! 😱
#brigidkosgei
.
Kosgei’s half-way split of 1:06:59 suggested a finishing time of about 2:14:00. Fewer than five kilometres later, her lead over Yeshaneh had grown to two minutes, reaching 25km in 1:19:33. As she continued to run behind two male pacemakers, Kosgei added another minute to her lead thanks to a 15:45 split between 25km and 30km.
. 
Another sub-16-minute five-kilometre segment followed, this time 15:56, and her 35km split (1:51:14) still indicated a finishing time about a minute inside Paula Radcliffe’s world record of 2:15:25, set 16 years ago. Given the speed she was going and how far into the race she was, she looked relatively comfortable too.
. 
Nearly four-and-a-half minutes behind, Yeshaneh had a 33-second margin over Burka but both women were also on course for a personal best.
The race, though, was all about Kosgei’s world record attempt and she showed no signs of fading in the closing stages. The pace makers peeled away before the final two miles as Kosgei forged on alone.  Credit @chimarathon • • • • • •
