Kipchoge’s documentary and the need to tell stories of our athletes

What you need to know:

  • On Sunday August 8, 2021, Kipchoge blitzed at a furious pace and shone like the sun when he won the Olympic gold medal.
  • This win was especially sweet because almost a year ago, on October 4, 2020, Kipchoge lost the London Marathon title to Ethiopian Shura Kitata.

“Watching Eliud Kipchoge run a marathon is like watching the sun rise. Not sunrise, that cheap tangerine moment when the sun first cracks the horizon, that insurance-commercial symbol of a fresh start, new day, whatever. But the sun, rising. That inexorable progress, becalmed, indifferent, a relentless passage across the hours of a morning.
