WGRZ shared the story on Eliud Kipchoge
The Olympic champion ran at a consistent average pace of 4 minutes, 33 seconds per mile. But the historic moment won't officially count as a world record.

The Olympic champion and world record holder from Kenya clocked 1 hour, 59 minutes and 40 seconds Saturday at the INEOS 1:59 Challenge, an event set up for the attempt.
So, how did he feel at the finish?
"I'm feeling good," Kipchoge said. "I'm the first man, I want to inspire many people that no human is limited."
