Rejoicing with Joyciline Jepkosgei

11 April, 2017 - Categories: Sport

On April 1st, 2017, the Kenyan athlete, running for RunCzech Racing Team, smashed the world record for the women’s half marathon in the Czech capital in 1:04:52: the first woman to cover 21K in less than one hour and five minutes. This was only the 23-year-old’s fifth half marathon to date, though she’d already established the Karlovy Vary record last year (also in the Czech Republic, where she confesses to feeling perfectly “at home”): nonetheless, it was totally unexpected to see her pulverize the world record by a good 14 seconds, only few months later – yet another proof of just how much Human Tecar can help athletes reach their goals fast, by assisting them daily with their training, wherever they train – Africa included.

Joyciline Jepkosgei also smashed the world records for 10km, 15km and 20km en route to her victory. Having covered the opening five kilometers in 14:53, she passed through 10km in a stunning 30:04, well inside the previous 10km world record of 30:21 set by Paula Radcliffe in 2003.

Her 15km split was 45:37, once again surpassing the world record of 46:14 set by Florence Kiplagat in 2015. After passing through 20km in yet another world record time, 1:01:25, she went on to cross the finish line in 1:04:52, taking 14 seconds off Peres Jepchirchir’s earlier WR.

All of us at Human Tecar can only rejoice with ‘our’ athlete, who confided: “I still can’t believe it’s really happened. All I wanted to do was run one hundred percent…”
It looks like Human Tecar and Joyciline’s amazing talent pushed that one hundred percent to unexpected heights.
