At 42 Years Old Mark Kiptoo Is Still Going Strong After 2:07:50 Masters World Record In Frankfurt
"For sure I want to keep pushing and believe I can still go faster. Today 2:05 – 2:06 was possible but the wind in the second part of the race made it hard. I was aware of the record but my goal was also to try to win the race. Once the leaders had got away I was still fighting for every position and it was nice that this assisted me to achieve the record. ... I want to continue to run as long as my body will allow. For now, I am still healthy and my training showed me I was in good shape. With the support of God, my family, my management team and my training partners, I know that anything is possible. ... I do not really view what is possible in terms of my age, I am seeing it to be the best that I can be every day.”
