Double Olympic champion Eliud Kipchoge has broken his own men’s marathon world record at yesterday’s (25) race in Berlin.   The 37-year-old Kenyan crossed the line in a time of two hours, one minute, and nine seconds, to beat his previous best by 30 seconds, set four years ago in the German capital city.   He had previously taken one minute 20 seconds off compatriot Dennis Kimetto’s 2014 record of 2:02.57 in Berlin.   Kipchoge had played down his chances of a world record in the build up.   “I am happy with my preparation and I think I was so fast because of the teamwork. Everything is down to teamwork,” he said.   “What motivates me is my family and I want to inspire young people. Sport unites people and that is what motivates me.”
