Kenyan running legend Kipchoge wins the Tokyo marathon

Eliud Kipchoge, a Kenyan double-Olympic winner, won the Tokyo marathon on Sunday.

Kipchoge also won the Olympic gold medal in Tokyo last year.

The 37-year-old running superstar, however, fell short of breaking his own world record of 2 hours, 1 minute, and 39 seconds, which he established in Berlin in 2018.

Brigid Kosgei, a 28-year-old Kenyan who also holds a world record, won the women’s race in 2 hours, 16 minutes, and 2 seconds.
