Berlin Course Continues as World’s Fastest
The Berlin course is generally considered one of the fastest in the world and its reputation was upheld on Sunday as Tigst Assefa of Ethiopia set a new women’s marathon world record with a time of 2:11:53. That smashed the previous record of 2:14:04 set in Chicago.
Kenya’s Eilud Kipchoge, the current men’s world record holder, won his fifth Berlin title on Sunday with a time of 2:02:42. Kipchoge set the world record at the Berlin race in 2018 with a phenomenal time of 2:01:39.
More Marathons Ahead for Jeffrey
As The Clip Out previously reported, if Berlin weren’t enough, Jeffrey also plans to run the New York Marathon this fall and the Los Angeles Marathon in March 2024. So if you happen to be running any of those events, maybe you’ll spot him blazing through those courses.
Congrats again to Jeffrey on his outstanding finish in Berlin!!
