Description

Marathon racing powerhouses Eliud Kipchoge and Brigid Kosgei have both smashed records over the weekend.

Kipchoge broke the two-hour barrier in Vienna while in Chicago, Kosgei took just over 14 minutes longer to finish her race.

The ground breaking performances have prompted questions about whether there are any limits to what the human body can do but some scientists say we've nearly reached our limits.
