Crazy world record for Tigst Assefa in the women’s marathon
Freaky world record for Tigst Assefa in women’s marathon
Ethiopia's Tigst Assefa pulverized the world record in the women's marathon by more than two minutes in this morning's race in Berlin.
Assefa è arrived at the finish line at the Brandenburg Gate in a sensational time of 2 hours 11 minutes and 53 seconds, surpassing by 2 minutes and 11 seconds the previous record set by Kenyan Brigid Kosgei, who ran a time of 2 hours 14 mnutes and 4 seconds in Chicago in 2019.
In the men’s race, Kenya’s Eliud Kipchoge won his fifth marathon in Berlin, in 2 hours 2 minutes 42, a time that does not allow him to better the world record of 2 hours 1 minute 9 set last year on the streets of the German capital.
