“Yesterday, marathoner Eliud Kipchoge became the first ever to break two hours. Today in Chicago, Brigid Kosgei set a new women’s world record. Staggering achievements on their own, they’re also remarkable examples of humanity’s ability to endure—and keep raising the bar.” Said, Barack Obama.
Kipchoge thanked Mr. Obama for his special words as he noted how he has inspired him.
“Dear Mr. Obama, Thank you for your special words. In life, we hope to inspire others. Thank you for inspiring me.
It would be my greatest honor if we could meet, and discuss how we can make this world a running world. As a running world is a peaceful world.” Said, Eliud Kipchoge.
