EDITORS NOTE: EDIT CONTAINS WHITE FLASH SHOWS: VIENNA, AUSTRIA (OCTOBER 10, 2019) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) KENYAN RUNNER, ELIUD KIPCHOGE, SAYING: "To run in Berlin and to run in Vienna are two different things.

Berlin is running and breaking a world record.

Vienna is running and making history in this world.

Like the first man to go to the moon.

That's the two different things." 2.

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.
