Geoffrey Mutai of Kenya reestablished his claim to be the world's best marathoner, but only just!



Berlin, Germany - When the fastest man in the Marathon world meets the fastest course in the Marathon world, the odds are in favour of something special. In Berlin that usually means a World record, of which there have been no fewer than seven in the past 15 years. The most recent was last year, by Patrick Makau of Kenya, 2:03:38 in a race during which he destroyed former record holder, the legendary Haile Gebrselassie.
