Meet The Men Who Will Try To Slay Kipchoge At The London Marathon

null

34-year-old Eliud Kipchoge is the best marathoner there has ever been, and very likely, the best there ever will be. He enters this Sunday’s London Marathon just seven months removed from his transcendent 2:01:39 world record in Berlin, a 78-second improvement on the previous record that is only comprehensible because Kipchoge ran a is he human 2:00:25 at Nike’s Breaking2 event in 2017. Oh, and he’s also won 10 straight marathons and has never lost in London. To call him the favorite on Sunday isn’t enough; Kipchoge is arguably the biggest favorite there has ever been at a major marathon.

Four Big Questions Heading Into The Women's London Marathon

While Eliud Kipchoge casts a long shadow over the men’s race at the London Marathon, the women’s competition has much more balanced field. The current title holders from London, Berlin, Chicago and New York are all entered in this year’s race along with Americans Molly Huddle and Emily Sisson.
