Kenya's ace Kosgei set a women's world record in Chicago

One day after the first run of a marathon distance of less than two hours by Eliud Kipchoge in Vienna, his compatriot Brigid Kosgei set a world record for women in Chicago. The 25-year-old was just 1:21 minutes below the previous world record in the classic race in 2:14:04 hours, set by the British Paula Radcliffe on April 13, 2003 in London. Kosgei had won in Chicago last year and also in London this year. At the beginning of September she also achieved the fastest half marathon time for women in 1:04:28 hours, but this brand is - at least as yet - not homologated.

The Boston winner won the finish sprint against Ethiopian Dejene Debela in 2:05:45 hours with a second advantage. With Asefa Mengstu, third place was three seconds behind the winner. Last year's British winner Mo Farah finished eighth in 2:09:58 hours. The American Galen Rupp gave up.
