World marathon record holder and history maker, Eliud Kipchoge, is our Man Crush Monday (#MCM) this week.

The iconic Kenyan marathon runner has managed to push boundaries and proven to us that no human is limited. Kipchoge has just been crowned the 2019 World Athletics Male Athlete of the year.

The 35-year-old father of three has made a name for himself and earned the respect that he deserves while making Kenyans extremely proud.

The Ineos 1:59 Challenge record holder is a humble man who hails from Nandi County. He had an early introduction to running; he used to run 3.2km to school every day.

He is a talented man who was raised by a single mother, and she certainly raised a superstar. Kipchoge did not let his life struggles limit him, and he continues to give hope to young people who are inspired by him and his achievements.
