Women's Marathon Kenya's Cosgay is World New 2 hours 14 minutes 4 seconds October 14 1:21
The American Chicago Marathon took place on the 13th, and Kenya's Brigitte Kosgay won the world record of 2 hours 14 minutes 4 seconds. This time is more than 1 minute faster than the world record so far, and it is the first update in 16 years.
Kosgay started the race from the beginning and led the second-placed player at the midpoint of over 21 km for about 1 minute and 20 seconds.
After that, Kosgay, who expanded his lead, won in 2 hours, 14 minutes and 4 seconds, with a close difference of 7 minutes to the second place player.
The world record so far was 2 hours 15 minutes 25 seconds marked by Paula Radcliffe in England in 2003, 16 years ago, and Kosgay updated this by 1 minute 21 seconds.
Cosgay is 25 years old. I won the Chicago Marathon last year in 2 hours 18 minutes 35 seconds, and in the London Marathon in April, I marked my personal best time of 2 hours 18 minutes 20 seconds.
