17 Oct Marathon Runner – Kenyan sets a new world record.
The world continues to celebrate Kenyan marathon runner, Eluid Kipchoge, who became the first person to complete a marathon in under 2 hours. Through his pure athleticism and sheer determination, Kipchoge completed the #INEOS159 challenge in Vienna, Austria in a time of 1:59:40.
The journey began eight years ago, and his zeal formed part of the inspiration for Nyashinski‘s massive hit single ‘Marathon Runner’. On this number, the rapper shows his admiration for Kipchoge’s prowess as well as that of esteemed former runner Kipchoge Keino.
The song was released in April 2019 and is inspirational by encouraging dreamers to keep running their respective races until achieving their goals. ‘Marathon runner’ was used by Kenyans across the globe as the unofficial anthem in preparation of Kipchoge’s big day.
