Eliud Kipchoge has become the first athlete to run a marathon in under two hours, beating the mark by 20 seconds.
Axar.az reports citing BBC.
The Kenyan, 34, covered the 26.2 miles (42.2km) in one hour 59 minutes 40 seconds in the Ineos 1:59 Challenge in Vienna, Austria on Saturday.
It will not be recognised as the official marathon world record because it was not in open competition and he used a team of rotating pacemakers.
"This shows no-one is limited," said Kipchoge.
"Now I've done it, I am expecting more people to do it after me."
