Quote Of The Day
“This is kind of the race of the decade, I think, to have three guys within 25 seconds of the world record racing against each other … If the weather is like it is nine out of 10 times in Berlin, the record will not be broken by five seconds, but by a lot more.”
– Agent Jos Hermens talking to LetsRun.com about Sunday’s BMW Berlin Marathon. Hermens, who represents Kipchoge and Bekele, says Kipchoge is in very similar shape to when he ran 2:00:25 in Breaking2. As for Bekele, Hermens says he’s “ready” but admits it’s hard to know everything about Bekele as he’s “very secretive with the training. Very few people know. I think even his wife doesn’t know.”
If the WR does fall, it will be the 8th men’s WR in Berlin: LRC World Record History: A Look Back At The Men’s Marathon World Records Set in Berlin.
