Unbelievable really. Rolf Sørensen was in tears for a long time afterwards. :cry:  :worthy:

Who had the idea to have the track World Championships in Qatar? They had the women's marathon at midnight to account for the temperatures, but it was still so hot and humid that of 68 starters 28 didn't finish, with several requiring medical assistance afterwards. It's basically road cycling world championships from a few years ago all over again :rolleyes:

Kipchoge runs first Marathon under 2 hours in Vienna:

Wild.

By the way, what is this INEOS and why are they sponsoring so much sport at the moment?

It should be noted that the IAAF will not recognize the record - it was set under non-competition conditions, like having a car in front of Kipchoge, and having other runners specifically participating as pacemakers for him.

It's a private UK based plastics company, owned by a Brexit backing UK multi-billionaire.  <_<

He seems to want to paint it and his company's name big across the world; keep an eye out for the INEOS 'flagged' gas ships carrying North American shale gas across the Atlantic.

The US trailing in the Presidents Cup is surely a sign Trump has brought God's wrath down upon us.
