The Chicago Marathon was Kiftum's third full marathon event.

Kiftum emerged as a world-class marathoner by recording a time of 2 hours, 01 minutes and 53 seconds at the Valencia Marathon on December 4, 2022, and four months later, on April 23 of this year, at the London Marathon, he recorded a 'second place record' of 2 hours, 01 minutes and 25 seconds.

In less than five months, Kiftum has shortened his own record by 50 seconds and is now the 'all-time number one men's marathon'.

The world track and field world, which ranked Kipchoge as the number one person to achieve the world marathon's long-awaited goal of achieving 'sub 2' (running the full marathon course in under 2 hours), is turning its attention to Kelvin Kiptum, born in 1999.

Coach Hakizimana told AFP: "Kiftum trains too much. I told

him, 'If he continues like this, his career as a player could be over in five years.

They advise, ‘You need to reduce your training for the rest of your career,’ but Kiftum doesn’t want to stop training,” he said.

“All he does all day is eat, sleep, and run.”

He said, “He trained for a long time.

When he needs to increase his distance, Kipchoge runs 180 to 220 km a week.

“Kiftum runs 250 to 280 km a week, and sometimes over 300 km a week,” he said.

“While preparing for the London Marathon, I ran over 300 km a week for three weeks.

“When Kiftum shows signs of fatigue, we rest for a while, but he rarely gets tired,” he added.

Ha-seong Kim had the Best Season [sport]

Kim Ha-seong had the Best Season... Will he Soar Higher as a Shortstop Next Year?





A season where Bae Ji-hwan showed potential… Ji-Man Choi is at a crossroads in survival in the big league.

The suspended game between the Miami Marlins and New York Mets, scheduled for the 3rd (Korean time), was canceled as it was unrelated to the postseason matchup, bringing the American professional baseball Major League (MLB) regular season to an end.

Ryu Hyun-jin (36, Toronto Blue Jays), whose team advanced to the postseason, still has fall baseball remaining, while Kim Ha-seong (27), Choi Ji-man (32, San Diego Padres), and Bae Ji-hwan (24, Pittsburgh Pirates) have finished their seasons. 온라인카지노

Among all Korean fielders, Ha-Seong Kim had the second most successful season after Shin-Soo Choo (41, SSG Landers).

Although his performance declined at the end of the season due to physical decline, he played well with a batting average of 0.260 (140 hits in 538 at-bats), 17 home runs, 60 RBI, 84 runs, 38 stolen bases, and OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.749.

He still had the best defensive ability in the league, and even showed an eye for hitting, raising expectations for next season.

Based on his current performance, Kim Ha-seong is likely to be the third Korean player to receive the most votes in the National League Most Valuable Player (MVP) vote.

Although it is difficult to actually win the award, he is expected to receive votes for the first time since Choo Shin-soo, who ranked 14th and 12th in 2010 and 2013, respectively, and Ryu Hyun-jin, who ranked 19th in 2019.

He is also looking to win the Gold Glove Award for Best Defender, Second Base Player or Utility Player.

Ha-seong Kim, who began his big league career in San Diego in 2021, has a four-year contract ending next year.

If he maintains the same batting production and defensive ability as this year next year, he will be worth a shot at signing a large contract.

In the United States, it is expected that San Diego will pursue a contract extension with Kim Ha-seong next season in earnest.

In this atmosphere, there is a story that could raise Kim Ha-seong's ransom even further.

Sander Boharz, who played as San Diego's starting shortstop this season, said in an interview with the San Diego Tribune, a local San Diego newspaper, on the 2nd, "I have no intention of insisting on playing shortstop next year."

While Bohartz's preferred position is known to be second base, there is a high possibility that Kim Ha-seong will return to shortstop.

Sports Illustrated predicted, “Ha-Sung Kim has solidified his position as a key cog of the team in offense and defense this year.

Even if Boharz changes positions, there will be no major problems thanks to Ha-Sung Kim’s versatile talent.”

If Kim Ha-seong, who unfortunately missed joining the '20-20 Club' this year with 17 home runs -38 stolen bases, achieves the record at shortstop next year, his value is expected to soar through the roof.

Bae Ji-hwan, who played as Pittsburgh's center fielder and second baseman, this season was 'half a success.'

In 111 games, he left with a batting average of .231 (77-for-334), 2 home runs, 32 RBI, 54 runs, 24 stolen bases, and an OPS of .608.

Although it may be disappointing to only look at his batting performance, he instead received attention for his excellent base running and brilliant defense.

The Pittsburgh team expects Bae Ji-hwan, the team's most stolen base player this season, to grow into the next generation's number one hitter as he gains experience and produces more quality batted balls.

Among the trio of Korean big leaguers, Ji-Man Choi, the eldest, had the most difficult season.

He started the new season in Pittsburgh, but played only 23 games due to injury, and even when he moved to San Diego in the second half of the season, he suffered from injuries and poor performance.

His performance this season is a batting average of 0.163 (17 hits in 104 at-bats) in 39 games, 6 home runs, 13 RBI, 12 runs scored, and an OPS of 0.624.

This is the fewest game appearances and report card since 2018, when he made the leap to a semi-major level player in the big league.

Choi Ji-man, who qualified as a free agent at the end of this season, will have to worry about survival in the big league next year.

Choi Dong-yeol said, "Qin Haiyang has become a world-class athlete since this year.

Watching an Asian athlete of the same age as me dominate the world in breaststroke, I promised myself, 'I shouldn't get tired, too.

I can do it if I try hard.'"

He added, "Breaststroke requires a physical condition.

“Even though I am at a disadvantage, it is a sport that allows me to compete with Western players such as the United States and Australia through technical effort.

I am also curious about my limits.

I will go to the end,” he said.
