Kenyan Wilson Kipsang

On Sunday, Wilson Kipsang of Kenya set a new world record marathon time of 2 hours 3 minutes 23 seconds at the Berlin Marathon.

The 31-year-old Kipsang bested the previous record, set by fellow Kenyan Patrick Makau in 2011, by 15 seconds. That record was also set in Berlin on a course known for its flatness and cool and dry weather. It was also the eighth world record in Berlin in 15 years, according to the Associated Press.

Kipsang earned $54,000 in prize money plus another $68,000 for breaking the record.
