Three world records run by Naoko Takahashi in Berlin

The 24th of December 2002 was the date the IAAF chose to publish its lastest

list recognising world records (world best rimes) for road races with effect

from 01.01.2003. According to the new list Naoko Takahashi (JPN) has been

credited with having run three world records at the 28th real,- BERLIN-MARATHON

on the 30.09.2001, namely: 25 km 1:22:31

30 km 1:39:02

Marathon 2:19:46

This is the first time in a number of years that the IAAF has gone through

the process of recognising a number of world records run in road races which

met all the criteria required.

Mark Milde, real,- BERLIN-MARATHON’s top-athlete recruiter had the

right intuition when he requested the chief timekeeper and competition judge to

set up special time keeping points at the 25km and 30km points in order to

officially record the times at these points.

Naoko Takahashi lost her marathon world record only one week later to

Catherine Ndereba (KEN), whose record has subsequently beend topped by Paula

Radcliffe (GBR).

Despite this, both of Takahashi’s world records over 25km and 30km run

in Berlin in 2001 still stand.

This means that a total of 8 world records have been established at the

BERLIN-MARATHON since 1977.

Women: 1977 Christa Vahlensieck (GER) 2:34:48

1999 Tegla Loroupe (KEN) 2:20:43

2001 Naoko Takahashi (JPN) 2:19:46

Men: 1998 Ronaldo da Costa (BRA) 2:06:05

Junior world record: 1988 Tesfayi Dadi (ETH) 2:12:49

Team world record: 1997 Kenia - Elijah Lagat, Eric Kimaiyo, Sammy Lelei

6:23:24

Elijah Lagat (1.) 2:07:41

Eric Kamaiyo (2.) 2:07:43

Sammy Lelei (3.) 2:08:00

Over and above the world’s fastest time of the year has been run 8

times in Berlin. The athletes established 5 Regional, 2 Commonwealth and 31

National records of their respective countries.
