Kamworor Smashes Men’s World Half Marathon Record

Kenya’s Geoffrey Kamworor sliced 17 seconds off the world record at the Copenhagen Half Marathon completing the race in 58min 01sec.

Kamworor’s compatriot Abraham Kiptum held the record previously at 58:18 set in Valencia in 2018.

The 26-year-old Kenyan has won his third world half-marathon title.

Kamworor broke away from the pack and raced alone for the final 11 kilometres, defying the heavy rain to set the record..
