Ethiopian runner Asefa significantly improves the world record in the Berlin Marathon / Article

Asefa broke the world record achieved by Brigida Kosgei in Chicago in 2019 by two minutes and 11 seconds.

Kenyan Sheila Chepkirui finished second in two hours, 17 minutes and 49 seconds. Third with a new Tanzanian record – two hours 18 minutes and 41 seconds – was Magdalena Shauri.

Asefa also won the Berlin Marathon last year.

Kenyan Eliud Kipchoge was unbeaten in Berlin for the fifth time in the men’s race, finishing in two hours, two minutes and 42 seconds. In the first half of the distance, he ran in the same world record time he achieved last year in Berlin (2:01:09).

Second was his compatriot Vincent Kimpkemboi, who lost 31 seconds, although he was able to close in on Kipchoge with a few kilometers to go. Another debutant, Ethiopian Tadese Takele, was third, finishing 11 seconds behind Kipkemboi.

The fourth of six marathons of the prestigious “World Marathon Majors” this season took place in Berlin. On October 8, the steers will compete in Chicago and on November 5 – in New York.
