Congratulations to the winner of the 2022 Berlin Marathon!

Eliud Kipchoge, the Kenyan athlete who won the Berlin Marathon and broke his own world record at 2:01:09, is a Paulo Coelho fan, as we can see from the inspirational quote written by the author hanging on the wall of his room at the training camp in Kaptagat, “If you want to be successful, respect one rule: Never lie to yourself.”

Paulo dedicated the first edition of The Alchemist in Kiswahili, Mualkemia, to Eliud Kipchoge. Check out this video to see it:
