Berlin Marathon: (Photos) Eliud Kipchoge dons customised shoes bearing family names
Olympic champion Eliud Kipchoge, defending BMW Berlin Marathon champion Kenenisa Bekele and former world record-holder Wilson Kipsang are chasing a world record at the 44th BMW Berlin Marathon on Sunday morning.
The world’s fastest trio will be chasing glory in Germany city in attempts to break the world record of 2:02:57 which Kenya’s Dennis Kimetto set three years ago in Berlin.
As the three men seek to outsmart each other in Berlin, the battle is seemingly headed for branding superiority. Nike and Adidas to be specific.
According to Sports360, Kipchoge and Bekele are team mates in the NN Running team which is supported by Nike.
Kipchoge will wear custom made Nike Zoom Vapor Elite printed EK with a sock liner top cloth bearing his wife, daughter and son’s names.
On the other hand, Kipsang will be getting into his Adidas’ new limited edition adizero sub 2.
Kipsang’s footwear is also touted the lightest racing shoe by Adidas.
In the time of close to two hours, we will definitely know who reigns supreme…
