"Before I call it quit, I think I have a World Record in me, I am not training because of less things, I am training because I want to push the limit," those are the words of legendary Eliud Kipchoge ahead of Sunday's Berlin Marathon.

23 September 2023"Before I call it quit, I think I have a World Record in me, I am not training because of less things, I am training because I want to push the limit," those are the words of legendary Eliud Kipchoge ahead of Sunday's Berlin Marathon.

"I am still hungry of breaking a world record because breaking it makes history and it's a once in a lifetime chance and that is what makes me happy," Kipchoge said ahead of his sixth appearance at the Berlin Marathon in the German capital. Kipchoge joined Ethiopia's Abebe Bikila and Germany's Waldemar Cierpinski when he defended Tokyo 2020 Olympics title as the only three athletes to achieve a repeat.

"But for me, I have achieved a lot... trying to run a marathon under an hour is a risk, I train hard to win the race, if I fail, I wake up and try to better it, that's why in the last 10 years I have run a lot of 2:02, I have broken the world record twice, ran under 2 hours once , so I am not afraid of failing," Kipchoge revealed.
