Brigid Kosgei wins the Chicago Marathon in world record time


One day after Eliud Kipchonge had run a marathon in less than two hours, his compatriot Brigid Kosgei set a world record. Kosgeis manager, however, already supervised several convicted Doper.

Kenyan Brigid Kosgei has beaten Briton Paula Radcliffe's 16-year-old marathon world record by more than a minute. In the race in Chicago, the 25-year-old won in 2:14:04 hours.

As early as 2018, Kosgei crossed the finish line first in Chicago. This year she dominated the race from the beginning and kept her high pace until the end of the race. Only in April was the Kenyan in her victory in London in 2:18:20 hours personal best run. Half a year later, she was now more than four minutes faster.

Kosgei is managed by Federico Rosa, who has been responsible for several convicted Doper from Kenya in the past. Asbel Kiprop, the Beijing Olympic champion over the 1500 meters, was also tested positively for the blood doping drug Epo, as well as his compatriots Jemima Sumgong, Marathon Olympic champion of 2016, and Rita Jeptoo Sitienei, who won the 2013 Chicago Marathon.
