The highest body of world athletics has confirmed the validity of the trademark of the Kenyan runner in the Elite Edition, after the pertinent retest of the circuit and the negative in the anti-doping controls that the runner passed, as well as the verification of compliance with all the technical aspects surrounding the record, including the validity of the shoes.
Kandie set a new world record on a historic journey, with four runners below the previous record of 21.097,5 meters, owned by Geoffrey Kamworor since September 15, 2019, achieved in the Copenhagen Half, a member of the SuperHalfs such as the Valencia half marathon.
