There is a new fastest marathon runner in the world: Brigid Kosgei beat the 16-year-old women’s Marathon world record in Chicago by a full 1:21 minutes.

Kenyan Brigid Kosgei broke the women’s world marathon record in Chicago. With a running time of 2:14:04 hours, the 25-year-old beat the 16-year-old record set by former British World Champion Paula Radcliffe by 1:21 minutes. Last year Kosgei had already won in Chicago, and this year also won the London Marathon.

Shortly more than 24 hours after the 34-year-old Kipchoge had been the first man in the world to master the 42.195 kilometers in Vienna in 1:59:40,2 and thus in less than two hours, Kosgei dominated the race of Chicago from the first meters onwards. In contrast to Kipchoge, Kosgei achieved her performance in an official race on a record-breaking marathon course, so that nothing should stand in the way of recognition as a world record.

Already the half marathon time of Kosgei of 1:06:59 hours indicated an end time of 2:14:00, and she kept up the high pace until the end of the race. Lawrence Cherono, the winner of this year’s Boston Marathon, won the men’s race in Chicago in 2:05:45 hours.
