Ruth Chepngetich's Marathon Hot Streak Continues: 3rd Fastest Marathoner in History Wins World Title in Brutally Hot Conditions

You can’t always tell the story of a marathon by looking at the results, but in this one, you could. A woman who ran 2:17 earlier this year ran 2:32 today and still won by over a minute. 28 of the 68 starters (41%) dropped out of the race. These were truly miserable conditions to run a marathon but that didn't stop Ruth Chepngetich from winning yet again. If she keeps this up, she could become the GOAT.
