After pre-race talk of high hopes for an attack on Eliud Kipchoge’s world record of 2:01:39, set on this same Berlin course in 2018, the Ethiopian’s career appeared to be in the balance and not for the first time given his age and injury record. But at 39 he is adamant that his potential for future success is realistic. Right after the race Kenenisa Bekele admitted that „for me the big problem was a lack of training because of the pandemic“. The Ethiopian also said that he caught Covid earlier this year. But he had no strong symptoms and recovered well.
