He will remain the Greatest If in the marathon world, he is the only elite marathoner who legitimately looked like he would run a sub 2 hr marathon. His death is a cruel loss for all Kenyans and the running fraternity. Mans deserve a state funeral!

Ive seen the wreckage on X, it was a saloon car but judging by how mangled the body was the car must have been doing over 140+

Whether factual or not, this will cast bad light on Kipchoge who obviously felt challenged by Kiptum and this year’s Olympics would have been the perfect place to witness handing over of the marathon king baton. Kipchoge has surprisingly not been a good sport, i recall when Kenenisa Bekele beat Haile Gabreselassie in 10k the two embraced and the elderly guy was happy that his countryman had stepped up and would ensure Ethiopians remained on top, it’s very surprising that Kipchoge does not hold this view. I hope and pray other budding runners learnt from Kiptum’s dedication and we will have another legend come through that magnificent Iten training ground

It’s really sad man. Gone too soon

Dont drink and drive.

Did America stop requiring COVID-19 vaccinations for visitors?

RIP the incoming GOAT :goat:, just like Wanjiru we have been robbed a legacy marathoner.

I suspect foul play.

Main suspects
