Ini berita mengenai sukan larian maraton. Dua berita berbeza lokasinya, berbeza rekodnya dan berbeza pelarinya. Namun kedua-duanya berkongsi perasaan yang sama iaitu gembira selepas dapat memecahkan rekod.

Bagi dunia maraton, rekod larian 42km diraikan pemegang baharu iaitu Eliud Kipchoge yang berjaya memadamkan catatan lama milik rakan senegaranya, Dennis Kimetto. Kipchoge mencipta rekod dunia baharu di Maraton Berlin semalam dengan catatan 2 jam 1 minit 39 saat – seminit 20 saat lebih pantas dari catatan Kimetto.

Rekod tersebut bagaimanapun masih dalam proses pengesahan sebelum disahkan sebagai rekod dunia oleh Persekutuan Persatuan Olahraga Antarabangsa (IIAF).

Sementara itu di Sydney pula, pelari kelahiran Terengganu, Edan Syah mencipta rekod dunia yang tersendiri. Edan berlari dalam kostum bendera kebangsaan untuk acara Sydney Running Festival.

Edan atau nama penuhnya Mohd Syahidan Alias mencatatkan masa 2 jam 54 minit 34 saat sekaligus memadam rekod lama 3 jam 45 minit.

Edan menerusi laman instagramnya mendedikasikan kejayaan tersebut bersempena sambutan Hari Malaysia yang disambut semalam.

THE GUINNESS WORLD RECORD AS THE FASTEST MARATHON WITH NATIONAL FLAG COSTUME WITH A RECORD TIME OF 2 HOURS 54 MINUTES! . . I am proud to celebrate the Malaysia Day today at the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival and breaking the Guinness World Record as the Fastest Marathon With a National Flag Costume with a time of 2 hours 54 minutes! πŸƒπŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ’¨πŸ‡²πŸ‡Ύ . I only got a chance to try the costume once when I am here in Sydney but I know nothing can stop me to achieve this milestone. It is very cold with strong wind today. It was a challenge to run with the Flag Costume as I felt my body swaying from side to side when the wind blows and created a strong resistant for me to move forward. . . I’m not sure where the energy and adrenaline came from but nothing can describe how proud I am to break the Guinness World Record on Malaysia Day! When people cheered and shouted; β€œGo Malaysia! and Malaysia Boleh!” , it gave me goosebumps and I felt the responsibility to carry the β€œJalur Gemilang” with pride and honour on me! πŸƒπŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ’¨πŸ‡²πŸ‡ΎπŸ’ͺ🏼 . Running is my passion for almost 10 years and I am happy to complete my 21st Full Marathon (42.2km) and my 17th sub-3:00 hours Full Marathon today! Every marathon that I ran, make me more humble with the distance. . . I want to thank all SAC friends for the financial contributions for this trip, AirAsia for flying me and my Manager; Jolene Hong to Sydney, the local fashion designer; Kamilla Rozary for her time to make this costume a reality, and Berita Harian & NTV7 7Edition for covering my journey to this Guinness World Record attempt. πŸ™πŸΌπŸ‡²πŸ‡Ύ . Thank you to all Malaysian for your positive words and encouragement. I have learned that the purpose of life is to live it, to #DARETODREAM, to reach out eagerly without fear for newer and richer experiences. The journey as the #FlagMan continues! πŸ€ͺ . Please share the news and HAPPY MALAYSIA DAY! #sayangimalaysiaku #daretodream #edansyahjourney #airasia #independentathlete #malaysiaboleh #sydneyrunningfestival
