Given that he is the Olympic champion and acknowledged to be the number one for the distance in recent years, this suggests the 33-year-old Kenyan is ready to produce something special. His best is currently 2:03:05, set in winning the 2016 Virgin Money London Marathon. This was eight seconds slower than the world record which remains in the possession of his compatriot Dennis Kimetto (2:02:57), when winning the 2014 race in Berlin. Kipchoge’s mental as well as physical prowess has suggested for some time that the world record is within his reach.

    Des Moines Diary: A year of surprises, and how social media will save our sport Noah Lyles, photo by PhotoRun.net In 2010, the USATF Championships were held in Des Moines, Iowa. It was a strange year, in that, with the European Championships, it was a year that US athletes were having an off year.

Yet, for track geeks, it was satisfying. This[…]
