Double Olympic marathon champion Eliud Kipchoge was all smiles as he confirmed his readiness for another ‘good race’ on Sunday (25 September) at the Berlin Marathon.
The Kenyan athletics star returns to the German capital, where he raced to the world record of 2:01:39 in 2018.
Kipchoge is expected to better the mark that has remained untested since Ethiopian Kenenisa Bekele nearly lowered it on the same course in 2019 with his 2:01.41 run.
“I am absolutely in shape. That’s why I am here. I expect a very good race on Sunday,” said Kipchoge at the event press conference held on Friday in Berlin, where he has been training since Tuesday.
The 37-year-old hopes to maintain his usual trademark smile when he crosses the finish line in what could be the fastest time over the 42.195 km race.
“Positivity is what drives a sportsman and any human being in this world,” he said to explain why he never let the pain show on his face while running.
“If you are positive, then you can push limits. If you think otherwise, you will start going back.”
