Brigid Kosgei breaks Paula Radcliffe’s 16-year long women’s marathon world record

Kenyan runner Brigid Kosgei, 25, BLITZES Paula Radcliffe’s 16-year lengthy ladies’s marathon world file as she retains Chicago title with speedy time of simply two hours and 14 minutes

Kenyan runner Brigid Kosgei has damaged Paula Radcliffe’s 16-year lengthy ladies’s marathon world file.

Kosgei clocked a successful time of two.14.04 to complete comfortably inside Radcliffe’s mark of two:15:25, set on the London 2003 marathon, to retain her Chicago title on Sunday.

The 25-year-old went by the midway level in 1.06.59 and barely fell off the tempo as she pressed on.

Radcliffe was current to congratulate Kosgei on the end, along with her file overwhelmed by nicely over a minute.

Kosgei’s achievement comes on an unimaginable weekend for marathon operating, along with her compatriot Eliud Kipchoge turning into the primary man ever to interrupt the two-hour barrier – albeit not below race circumstances and subsequently not a file – on Saturday.
