Sub-2 has been the holy grail for a very long time in running. It was never a question of if it would happen but when and everyone was pretty sure Kipchoge would be the guy to do it in Berlin or Chicago after what he did last year (essentially shattered the record by a Secretariat-esque length). Nike kinda preempted that with this whole Vienna thing and while it’s pretty cool I can’t help but feel like we got jipped for marketing purposes. Meh - Maybe. I think everyone who's interested knows this is a showcase, as you even allude to. And it's a phenomenal one at that, even with all the support. But, if he ever does it in an actual race, that will certainly dwarf this. He's only 1:40 away from that.
