Athletes compete in the marathon at the Monza Formula One racetrack, Italy, Saturday, May 6, 2017. Olympic marathon champion Eliud Kipchoge won the race and was 26 seconds from making history on Saturday but in the end the Olympic champion was just short of becoming the first person to run a marathon in less than two hours. Kipchoge ran the 26.2 miles (42.2 kilometers) in 2 hours and 25 seconds, beating Dennis Kimetto's world record of 2:02:57, but the Kenyan failed to run the first sub-two hour marathon. The attempt at Monza's Formula One racecourse did not go down as an official world record, sanctioned by the IAAF, due to variables like pacers entering mid-race and drinks being given to runners via mopeds.
