Saw this video by TheRunner on Youtube the other day. Kenenisa Bekele is attempting the marathon world record on September 26th, at the Berlin Marathon 2021.
Bekele is already a great athlete with impressive credentials who will go down in history, but this would make him perhaps the best distance runner in history. However, there are rumors that Bekele is reaching the end of his career, and perhaps he does not have a world record left in him. Recently, Bekele has been getting frustrating injuries prior to his race, which cause him to have to drop out.
Will Bekele be able to do it?
