Eliud Kipchoge thinks that his training partner Geoffrey Kamworor is the man to possibly shatter his marathon world record

Eliud Kipchoge ran two hours, one minute and 39 seconds in Berlin last year setting the world marathon record. Geoffrey Kamworor shattered the half marathon world record in Copenhagen clocking 58:01 in the Danish capital.

Kipchoge is confident that the best is yet to come from the new 21km world record holder and that his training partner in Kaptagat is destined for greatness, “owing to his hard work and discipline in training.”

“Geoffrey is the man and everything is possible if we continue to embrace great planning, preparations, camaraderie, management and coaches,” said Kipchoge, 34, when asked if Kamworor is his heir-apparent in the marathon.

Kamwowor, 26, improved the half marathon world record from the previous mark of 58:18 set by compatriot Abraham Kiptum in Valencia last year.
