Congratulations Eliud Kipchoge for smashing the two-hour marathon barrier
“In Berlin it was running to break a world record, in Vienna it was running to make history — like the first man to go to the moon.” Eliud Kipchoge.
The Embassy congratulates Mr. Eliud Kipchoge for writing the marathon history in Vienna as the first person in the world to run the 42.195 kilometers marathon in less than two hours. This achievement is the ultimate milestone in athletic performance and the most impressive sporting achievement in history. We celebrate your success which we also consider as an achievement for all sportsmen and women.
