Worldwide marathon icon Eliud Kipchoge became the first marathon runner to break the two hour barrier recording a 1 hour 59 minutes and 40 seconds time to finish the race in Vienna Austria Saturday.
Kipchoge, 34 won the Olympic marathon in 2016 in Rio Berlin and is the current world record holder of 1 hr 59 mins 40 sec.
The runner had previously pushed the mark close with the same attempt at the Monza Formula 1 race truck near Millan in 2017.
In his quest, Kipchoge was assisted by a team of 41 pacesetters including former Olympic and world record holders and a support car with electric line which guided him on the pace he was suppose to use in order to finish the race in the stipulated time.
Kipchoge will harvest a whopping 417M, a private jet among other baskets of gifts and prizes after breaking the Ineos 159 challenge.
