WHITE FLASH 3.
(SOUNDBITE) (English) KENYAN RUNNER, ELIUD KIPCHOGE, SAYING: "I think physical and mental should actually be the same.
You cannot be physically fit and poor mentally and you can perform.
You should be actually physically fit and mentally fit.
So you know, human being is his conscience, you can be fit but the mind is not there.
The moment that your mind is there then all will be well." STORY: Kenya's world record holder Eliud Kipchoge has compared running a sub two-hour marathon to going to the moon before his unofficial attempt in Vienna on Saturday (October 12) to become the first athlete to break the barrier.
The 34-year-old Olympic champion set the world record of 2:01.39 at the Berlin marathon last September, smashing the previous one by 78 seconds, but said Saturday's race is a completely different challenge.
A 41-man pacing squad will support Kipchoge, who missed out by 26 seconds in Monza, Italy, in May 2017.
The London Marathon's race director says the delayed 2020 race could be themost "inclusive" in history, as 45,000 entrants are encouraged to take part inthe postponed race virtually. The marathon was postponed from its usual Aprildate to October when the UK entered lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic.Elite athletes including Eliud Kipchoge, Kenenisa Bekele, Brigid Kosgei, DavidWeir and Manuela Schar will participate in a closed marathon in St James'sPark under biosecure conditions.
