Vienna-Sana

Kenyan runner Eliud Kipchoji has traveled 42 kilometers in less than two hours as part of a marathon in Vienna, Austria, becoming the first person to achieve such an achievement.

Kipchuji completed the marathon in an hour, 59 minutes and 40 seconds, Sputnik reported.

This is the second attempt of the runner Kipchoji after a failed attempt in 2017 through his participation in a marketing project called "Marathon under two hours" in the Italian city of Monza.

The IAAF will not endorse Kipchoji's achievement as a marathon that is not officially approved by the federation.

The marathon gold medalist at the 2016 Rio Olympics boosted his official world record by 78 seconds, setting in April the second fastest time in history when he finished the London Marathon in two hours, two minutes and 37 seconds.

Kipchoji used a team of 41 heartbeat specialists.
