Eliud Kipchoge triumphed to secure a fifth Berlin marathon as Tigist Assefa took more than two minutes off the women's world record. This was his first race since finishing sixth in the Boston Marathon held in April and the double Olympic champion finished alone at the front clocking 2:02:42 in time. Fellow Kenyan Vincent Kipkemboi finished slightly above half a minute after Kipchoge while Ethiopian Tadese Takele was third. After the race, Kipchoge said: "It didn't go as expected but that's how sport is. I've learned lessons. I have won but I've not broken the world record. Every race is a learning lesson." When asked about his prospects of defending his Olympic title in the upcoming Paris 2024 Olympics, he said: the outcome of the Berlin Marathon had little bearing on his plans and that he would "put all my experience in next year in the Olympics in Paris, and try to be the first human to win for the third time in history".
