No human is limited in Vienna by Eliud Kipchoge has made world history that no human is limited and we can go past what is unbelievable.
You did it. Congratulations Eliud Kipchoge! Certainly, no human is limited. You have made Kenya and the whole world proud. "I don't know where the limits are, but I would like to go there." - Eliud Kipchoge
To run a marathon in under two hours and to show to the world that when you focus on your goal, when you work hard and when you believe in yourself, anything is possible.
Eliud Kipchoge is the greatest marathon runner of all-time. His level of motivation, mental and physical discipline and consistency is unrivalled. Under the long-term guidance of the coach, mentor and friend Patrick Sang, Eliud first burst on the senior international scene as a teenager defeating track icons Hicham El Guerrouj and Kenenisa Bekele to 5000m gold at the 2003 World Championships.

Eliud then went on to enjoy a distinguished track career, winning 5000m bronze and silver medals at the 2004 and 2008 Olympic Games, respectively. He also won World 5000m silver in 2007 and his 5000m PB of 12:46.53 sits number six on the all-time lists.
After missing out on qualification for the London 2012 Olympics on the track, Eliud and his coach, Patrick Sang, opted to switch to the marathon – it has been an inspired decision.
During an unmatched marathon career, Eliud has claimed victory in ten out of 11 marathons, racking up an unprecedented nine successive victories over the 42.2km distance. Besides taking the Olympic marathon title in 2016, the Kenyan’s ground-breaking performance as part of the Nike Breaking 2 project – when running 2:00:25 - suggests he is on the verge of the history-defining achievement.
Following Breaking2 and after also memorably destroying the world marathon record in Berlin last year by 78 seconds - courtesy of his stunning 2:01:39 mark – and running the second-fastest marathon time in London this year, Eliud believes the time is right for him to prove no human is limited but also inspire future generations.
In INEOS Eliud believes he has found the perfect partner to match his vision, and who can inspire him and his team, to show the world that no human is limited and indeed he has set the world guiness record as the only man in the world who ran the marathon for under 2 hours.
