September 16, 2018 at the Berlin Marathon a 33-year-old Kenyan runner Eliud Kipchoge showed a fantastic result, beating the world record for 1 minute and 18 seconds - showing an incredible 2:01:39! What was this athlete wearing on the victorious marathon?
It was easy to notice a famous Nike logo flashing on Kipchoge's outfit. Let's take a closer look at his clothing and shoes on the day of the Berlin marathon.
Nike Pro Dri-FIT 3.0 Sleeves
The morning was cool, and the windbreaker is clearly not a suitable option for athlete’s speed (2:53 min/km). Light compression sleeves make an excellent solution.
Nike Miler Tank
This weightless breathable T-shirt made of polyester coped well with the sweat.
Nike Pro Compression Shorts
Compression shorts made of spandex, designed for no friction wherever it can occur. You can wear it separately or under light shorts or pants.
Nike Zoom Fly Flyknit
The world record has been established in Zoom Vaporfly 4% Flyknits running shoes. This model will be released only on October 4 (in the US), but right now you can take a closer look at similar products: Zoom Fly Flyknit has the same light woven upper part.
