The world record in the half marathon was broken this weekend in Lisbon, Portugal. It was previously held by Sammy Wanjiru. Zersenay Tadese of Eritrea smashed the world record in the Half Marathon today, clocking 58:23! That is 4:27 per mile! He also set the world record for 20k enroute. VDOT predicts a 2:02:27 marathon off that time! See race video here. He will be going head to head with Sammy at the London Marathon this April. Exciting!
