Geoffrey Mutai of Kenya won the Boston Marathon today in an (unofficial) world record time of 2:03:02.He beat Haile Gebrselassie’s existing mark by almost a full minute, but he had a massive tailwind for much of the race.
It won’t be an official world record until the IAAF signs off on it.
He bested countryman Moses Mosop by just 4 seconds, meaning he would have set a world record, too.
Ryan Hall set an American marathon record, finishing fourth in 2:04:58
