This 34-year-old Kenyan athlete has just become the first human in history to run a marathon in under two hours.

Eliud Kipchoge finished the INEOS marathon in 1 hour, 59 minutes, and 40.2 seconds today in Austria.

According to a team of pacemakers who kept up with Kipchoge throughout the ordeal, he ran at a pace of 4:33.5 minutes per mile in order to finish the challenge ahead of schedule.

That being said, Kipchoge already holds the world record for the fastest completed marathon after he finished the Berlin Marathon in 2:01:39 last year.

“I want to inspire many people that no human is limited,” Kipchoge told ESPN. “That was the best moment of my life. The pressure was very big on my shoulders. I got a phone call from the president of Kenya. I am the happiest man today.”
