For some background, here is a documentary detailing the first attempt 2 years ago;

I can’t imagine the focus that is required to keep this pace. This man is something else.

This man is insanely great. I was there last year in Berlin when he passed me (as an audience) near the Brandenburg Gate and he just shattered the record. And now it’s a sub 2-hour…

That’s an awesome shot. His stride is so elegant.

Judging by the photo above looks like Nike already in there with the sponsorship deal. I hope he didn’t sign anything too long-dated… I’d imagine his market price just went up pretty high.

Read this. Those shoes are part of his success.

Money wise this man is set for life.

Nike is full into it with marketing. They used newly developed, unreleased Nike marathon shoes for that record run.

I knew these rubbish Airwalk trainers are the reason I am such a bad runner.
