Eliud Kipchoge crowned the 48th edition of the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON in breaking the world record with his time of 2:01:09. The 37-year-old improved his own world best time by exactly half a minute. He was even on course for a while to achieve the dream of running under two hours but couldn’t maintain this splendid pace. The Kenyan added further lustre to Berlin’s already rich honour board since this was the 12th world record in the marathon’s history, a total unmatched by any other marathon race in the world.

Craig Huffer is one hell of an interesting guy to chat to regarding middle-distance running. A huge junior talent, Huffer posted 3:36 over 1500m as a 20-year-old. His career then took him to America where he spent some time at Adams State, before leaving college and joining The Very Nice...

Stewart McSweyn has become the second Australian man in history to run sub-13 over 5000m at the Brussels Diamond League overnight.
