Prof Makau Mutua Claims Kipchoge’s INEOS Record Is Fake




US based lawyer and top scholar, Prof Makau Mutua, has dismissed World Marathoner Eliud Kipchoge’s latest record as being fake and a wild charade.

Kenya’s Eliud Kipchoge bagged the record after he completed a 26.2 miles race in a once-inconceivable time of 1 hour 59 minutes 40 seconds. 

In an opinion piece published on The Daily Nation, Makau said that Kipchoge’s fuss that no human beings are limited is misleading. 

“His whole record concept is a makeup story,” Mukua had opined.

He argued that the conditions favored him to complete the INEOS challenge within the said duration so that business booms for those who had staked in the marathon.

He also argued that Kipchoge had pacesetters who were friendly to him unlike in the real contest where you are often surrounded by rivals. 

He further said that the race to break the world record has not been held so far. He asked Kenyans to ignore the claims that human beings can do anything in this world. Makau said that the argument is unfounded and senseless.

“He ran against himself without having to be worried — or psyched out — by real competitors. Instead, he was escorted by friendly ‘sycophants’ brought there to help him break the two-hour barrier. It’s like a boxer who knocks out a hapless sparring partner. Or a dictator running against himself. So, in a sense Mr Kipchoge’s ‘record’ is fake. The first true under-two-hour marathon hasn’t been run yet,” he posed.
