100th Sub-2:07 Marathon Runner

Last Sunday, marathon runner Robert Kiprono Cherulyot made history at the Commerzbank Frankfort Marathon. Cherulyot didn't win the marathon, but his finish time of 2:06:23 made him the one hundredth person in history to run a sub-2:07 marathon, reports IAAF Sports. Belayneh Densimo was the first to break the 2:07 mark in 1988, and it took almost ten and a half years for anyone to do it again.
