protecting his Rio 2016 name at Tokyo 2020 confirmed Kipchoge's repute as the greatest marathon runner ever, adding to a resume that includes the arena document of 2:01:39 from 2018 and going for walks the primary ever sub-two-marathon, albeit in unofficial situations, as part of the INEOS 1:59 challenge in 2019.

Kipchoge, who changed into talking to SNTV to promote a brand new film documenting his sub-two-hour fulfillment, "Kipchoge: The last Milestone", still rates that day in Vienna as the most important accomplishment of his career, which has visible him win thirteen of the 15 foremost marathons he has run since turning to the field in 2013.
