Kicks of the week - 22nd July

World record triple stroller

Running a marathon is not an easy task and calls for months or even years of vigorous training to accomplish one - even then, it’s quite an uphill task. Now imagine doing a marathon while pushing 185 pounds!

Cynthia Arnold set a new world record last month when she finished the Missoula Marathon in 3:11 while pushing her six-, four-, and one-year-old on a triple stroller. This was her second record as she is also the record holder fastest half-marathon with a triple stroller which she set last July.

Hellen Obiri does it again!

World and commonwealth  5000m star did it again at the Müller Anniversary Games at London Olympic Stadium on Sunday. New world record holder for the mile, Sifan Hassan led the pack for the first 4000m only for Obiri to break off and clinch the win at 14:20:36

Hellen’s win shaved off a mighty 13 minutes and 29 seconds from Tirunesh Dibaba’s record set in 2009.
