In Summary
  • Odinga said he fully embraces the #INEOS159 motto that No Human is Limited.

Deputy President William Ruto and Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga have pledged their support to Olympic marathon champion Eliud Kipchoge as he attempts to become the first athlete to run the marathon in under two hours.

Cabinet Secretary for Sports Amina Mohammed, who visited Kipchoge over a week ago in his training base in Kaptagat, also took to social media to encourage the Kenyan distance running legend as the clock ticks towards “INEOS 1:59 Challenge” on Saturday.

“In a few days, the world’s greatest marathoner will once again be embarking on uncharted journey to smash the limits of human athleticism and define a new level of distinction,” Ruto posted on his Twitter handle and Facebook pages. “I have absolutely no doubt he will achieve it. Go Eliud Kipchoge!”


Odinga said he fully embraces the #INEOS159 motto that says No Human is Limited. “Eliud Kipchoge has never been limited. We have faith that having done 2:00:25, this gallant son of Kenya and Africa will make it 1:59. Go go Eliud, we are behind you for something new, something unlimited,” said Odinga.
