Kenya’s Moses Mosop Sets Marathon Record

Medical team rushes to help a fallen runner near 16th and S. Michigan

Sore Achilles No Problem Today
Moses Mosop set a new record today at the 2011 Chicago Marathon. The Kenyan ran the race in 2:05:37. For winning the race, Mosop gets $100,000 and a bonus of $50,000 for breaking the course record. The old record was set by the late Sammy Wanjiru whose time was 2:05:41. Mosop told reporters that he had a sore achilles tendon before the race. The sore achilles did not appear to be a problem this Sunday.
Check the video below to see how big a victory Mosop’s win was.

Take a look at the video below for a look at the runners coming through after the three-hour mark.
