Kenya’s Wilson Kiprop took one second off the course record when he clocked 1:00:19 to win the race at the Rock’n’Roll Lisbon Half Marathon in Portugal on Sunday October 06; thus confirming himself to be one of the best athlete in the distance.

Kiprop was in the lead almost from the gun and was part of a three-man group, which included Eritrea's Goitom Kifle and Kenya's Simon Cheprot. They went through the 10km mark in a quick time of 28:20. “I told you before that I expected a fast race, with a lot of very strong competitors, and I said we can make history. I think that if I had more help, maybe with a pacemaker, we could run under one hour," said Kiprop at the end of the race.
