Eliud Kipchoge, premier homme sous les 2 heures au marathon

12 Octobre, 2019, 12:36 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion
  • Lors d’un marathon vous êtes seul alors qu’au football on peut compter sur les autres. Patrick Vieira est admiratif de l’exploit que va tenter de réaliser le Kényan Eliud Kipchoge

"Il n'y a pas de limites humaines", a confié le coureur de 34 ans après son exploit, qu'il compare à "marcher sur la Lune" pour la première fois. Seules les caméras de l'organisateur sont autorisées à filmer la course destinée à entrer dans la légende.

Pour mettre son champion dans les meilleures conditions, le sponsor n'a rien laissé au hasard: trois mois et demi de préparation du tracé, un parcours asphalté pour ne présenter aucune imperfection, une piste testée à maintes reprises notamment grâce à des logiciels de simulation et même.la chute automnale des feuilles des arbres contrôlée de près. Cette nouvelle marque n'est néanmoins pas homologuée par la Fédération internationale (IAAF). Devant les 41 "lièvres" qui se relaieront, une voiture de tête donnera le tempo.

Il s'agit de sa deuxième tentative pour franchir la distance en moins de deux heures. Un défi financé par INEOS (le groupe de pétrochimie anglais propriétaire de l'OGC Nice), qui lui a permis de courir les 42 kilomètres du marathon sur une avenue arborée parfaitement plane à Vienne, dans des conditions climatiques optimales, entouré de lièvres régulièrement renouvelés et avec un pace car rythmant la course en plus d'offrir une protection aérodynamique bienvenue.

Déjà détenteur du record du monde du marathon en 2h 01mn 39s à Berlin en septembre 2018, Kipchoge peut compter sur le soutien d'Ineos, la société du milliardaire britannique Jim Ratcliffe. "J'ai suivi le même entraînement, mon équipe est la même, mais j'ai amélioré encore mon mental" a-t-il expliqué avant sa tentative.

Eliud Kipchoge a réussi son pari dans le parc Prater de Vienne samedi matin.

Le Kényan est l'un des plus grands coureurs de tous les temps, révélé au public lors de sa victoire sur 5.000 m des Mondiaux de Paris en 2003. Cette fois, il disait vouloir "courir pour l'histoire".
