VIENNA (AUT): World record-holder Dennis Kimetto is set to race in the Vienna Marathon on 22 April, informs organisers. "Dennis wants to show something in Vienna. I hope that the final part of his preparations will also go well. He is an athlete of extraordinary quality. After he ran his world record in Berlin physical problems started. I think the race in Berlin took a lot out of his body. We suggested to him to run in Vienna because we have good experience with the event and the course is fine for running a good time." said his manager Gerard van de Veen. Kimetto clocked 2:02:57 in the Berlin Marathon in 2014 but he has only broken the 2:10-barrier once since then.
