It was easily the fastest marathon time ever recorded, an incredible feat for another powerful Kenyan(The Kalenjin tribe) runner. But perhaps equally remarkable was that his fellow Kenyans also came in second, third, fourth and fifth place in this major international race. On the women’s side, Kenyans placed first, second and fourth. Only 17 American men in history who have run under 2:10 in the marathon on the other hand 32 Kalenjin who did it in October of 2011. The big question is how do they manage to be so good in long distance marathon. These are some of the facts which makes them world leading runner:
