Kibiwott Kandie's world record for the Valencia Half Marathon ratified

The highest body of world athletics has confirmed the validity of the brand

World Athletics has ratified the world record that Kibiwott Kandie achieved in Valencia last December, setting the new world record for half marathon in a spectacular 57: 32.

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.

Four runners short of the world record

Kandie broke the world record in 29 seconds, with Kiplimo (57:37), Rhonex Kipruto (57:49) and Alexander Mutiso (57:59) falling below 58 minutes in a historic day for athletics in Valencia.
