Double Olympic champion Eliud Kipchoge is set to feature at the 2022 Berlin Marathon, where he broke the World Record in 2018.

Kipchoge clocked 2:01:39 to win the race in 2018 and set a new World Record but has however not competed in the last two editions with only Kenenisa Bekele has come close to matching.

In a video put out by his management on Friday, Kipchoge announced he will be going back to the German capital which holds a special place in his heart.

“Berlin is the fastest course, it’s where a human being can showcase its potential to push the limits,” Kipchoge said.

Kipchoge will compete against with defending champion Guye Adola of Ethiopia with the organizers releasing the first few names of the elite list.

“I am very happy to be back at the Berlin Marathon to defend my title from last year. I always have a good feeling about Berlin because it was my debut marathon, and that time is still my personal best. This year I will try to run even faster and achieve a time under 2:03:00 hours,” Adola said.

Kipchoge and the Ethiopian Adola already put up an impressive show in 2017, with Adola nearly bringing Kipchoge close to the brink of defeat.

The 37-year-old proved to be in good shape at the Tokyo Marathon winning with a new course record of 2:02:40.

Kipchoge is already confirmed for the 2024 Olympics in Paris where he will be seeking a historic three-peat.
