This is the thread for other sports that deserve an occasional shout-out, but probably don't have enough interest to have their own thread. Y'know, golf, tennis, netball, whatever.
We're posting this today because Eliud Kipchoge runs very, very, very fast.
Averaged 4:34 a mile, and did that 26.2 times in a row. That's a 68.5 second lap, or 100 meters every 17 seconds. I don't know if I could beat ANY of those numbers. I don't know if I could do a 4:34 mile on a bicycle.
Like, how insane is this? Next time you go to a gym, see if you can set a treadmill to his average speed, 13 mph.
And even for the haters, it's not like he was running marathons in 2:35:00 before this. He already has the marathon World Record from Berlin, when he did it in 2:01:39. Just ridiculous.
