Kipsang_WilsonLeds1-Berlin16-thumb-500x750-25880.jpgWilson Kipsang has been to hell and back. A world record holder, and then, his world record went to someone else. Kipsang battles Eliud KIpchoge and runs fine races, but Kipchoge got him. Then, his battle with Kenenisa Bekele, where he nearly broke Bekele twice and Bekele took the win, pushing Kipsang to a new marathon PB, that was faster than his former WR, but he took second.

Whispers. Can Kipsang do it? Well, Wilson Kipsang has. He won in Tokyo Marathon and he will be racing in Berlin, as Eliud KIpchoge runs the Berlin Marathon as well. It should be an amazing race!

Kipsang's great day in Berlin came four years ago when he ran in the 40th edition of the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON and brought the world record down to 2:03:23, taking 15 seconds off the time set on the same course by his compatriot Patrick Makau. And Makau was on the spot to offer his congratulations since he was attending the event's jubilee's celebrations. The world record didn't last long in Kipsang's possession. In the next edition of the race in 2014, yet another Kenyan, Dennis Kimetto, became the first man to break 2:03 for the marathon when he stopped the clock at 2:02:57.
