Kosgei smashes Radcliffe’s marathon world record

Kenya’s Brigid Kosgei eclipsed the 16-year-old women’s marathon world record held by Britain’s Paula Radcliffe as she retained her Chicago title.

The 25-year-old recorded a time of two hours 14 minutes 04 seconds, easily inside Radcliffe’s mark of 2:15:25 set at the London Marathon in 2003.

It adds to the Kenyan’s win in London this year when she clocked 2:18:20 and became the youngest winner of the race.
