Great day for athletics and hopefully for the world

I was privileged to be able to be there and witness this amazing performance.

It was like a Roger Bannister moment.

42.2 kms in under 2 hours. For years they said it was impossible.

Eliud Kipchoge is the name to remember.

"A running world is a peaceful world and a happy world"  he said.

The time: 1 hour 59 minutes 40 seconds

The place: Vienna, Austria
