    Insane.

    The lad just ran an average of 2m 50c p/km for 42 km. That’s like a 100m every 17 secs the entire time.

    Great celebrations by the pacemakers too in the celebratory video.

    Illegal pacemakers and a wind blocking Tesla too.

    So it's not a world record, just a publicity stunt

    I reckon most, if not all, of the top athletes are on them.

    And still he was 'only' two minutes faster than his legit world record.

    100% of them are.

    Look at the 100m medallists at the recent championships
