I'm still in awe of how fast Eliud's speed. He is truly the greatest marathon distance runner of the last decade, maybe even more. I still remember watching this National Geographic documentary and being inspried by all that speed:
Some people didn't take his achievement seriously due to the format of the "experiment" and the fact that it wasn't an official race. He came just 30 seconds from breaking 2 hours. But to me he proved that it is possible and is just a matter of time. If anyone would break this 2 hour barrier, it would be him.
