Eliud Kipchoge 挑战极限

Eliud Kipchoge Runs World’s Fastest Marathon, in Nike’s Special Shoes

Eliud Kipchoge of Kenya, 32, the reigning Olympic marathon champion, covered 26.2 miles in 2 hours 25 seconds early on Saturday in an extremely managed setting of pacing and drafting on a Formula One racecourse in Monza, Italy, outside Milan.

It was the fastest marathon ever run, more than two and a half minutes quicker than the official world record, 2:02:57, set by Dennis Kimetto of Kenya at the 2014 Berlin Marathon. But Kipchoge’s time will not be ratified for record purposes, mainly because of rules regarding pace-setting.

The attempt, called Breaking2, was as much a Nike marketing play and a laboratory experiment as a sports competition. Even so, Kipchoge shaved a remarkable amount of time off his best official finish: 2:03:05 at the 2016 London Marathon.

 

 

马拉松沒破2小时 仍是人类史上最快

奇普喬格说:「这应该是我这辈子最棒的一场比賽,当然,里约奥运有超过10亿人看到我拿金牌,但这次,卻是让我相信自己原来有可能突破2小时內,这对于我未来的比賽都充滿了帮助,我现在就迫不及待想要跟团队讨论,如何在正式比賽中缩短这25秒。」

奇普喬格在前25公里都表現相当出色,时间都比破2小时的目标时间还快,但经过30、35公里时就开始变慢,他坦言:「最后3圈我确实跑得不好,我的能量有点流失、腳步也变慢了。

Nike挑战突破人类马拉松极限2小时计划「Breaking 2」,在意大利的F1蒙莎赛道开跑,参赛的包括里约奧运金牌的肯亚好手奇普喬格(Eliud Kipchoge),最终以2小时25秒的时间率先回终点,很可惜沒能如期待打破跑近2小时的挑战。
