Kenyan runner Eliud Kipchoge broke the marathon world record by more than a minute Sunday, winning the Berlin Marathon with a stunning time of 2:01:39. The previous record, also set in Berlin, was a 2:02:57 race run by Kenya's Dennis Kimetto in 2014.
"I had a great belief that I would run a world record," Kipchoge said after his victory. "But I didn't know I'd run 2:01. I didn't know that what I was believing translated to 2:01, but I'm happy for it."
