The reigning World Olympic record holder Eliud Kipchoge of Kenya has won the 2019 London Marathon elite men’s race for a record fourth time.
Kipchoge’s record-breaking achievement is a testimony that he has forgotten how to lose a race.
He first won the world title in 2015. In 2016 (2:02:57 ), 2018 (2:01:39) and 2019 (2:02:37).
The global superstar eschews fame and luxuries of wealth to an alarming extent.
The legend is married to Grace Sugut and they have three children.
He records all workouts in a notebook. He has 16 notebooks where he has recorded all his training’s for the past 16 years.
Kipchoge, 34 won the Berlin Marathon in 2015 even though his shoes malfunctioned, causing his insoles to flap out of both shoes from 10 km onward; he finished the race with bloodied, blistered feet.
He sold brew for a living after finishing Highschool.
The highly powered by mursik athlete has been described by ardent fans as:

Apart from sports, he sensitises the public about HIV/AIDS through the American Embassy.

In a humble gesture, the multimillionaire superstar lives in the same monastic lifestyle at his Kaptagat home as before.
