emails from all over the world


The new marathon world record of 2:04:55, set by Paul Tergat in the 30th real,- BERLIN-MARATHON caused a stir in the sports world. Race directors of the biggest marathons have sent us congratulations which we publish here and for which we would like to say thanks!

Allan Steinfeld, New York City Marathon

Dear Horst

Absolutely fantastic. Congratulations, congratulations, congratulations to you and your organization. Sub 2:05 unbelievable. You, Mark, your whole family and Paul Tergat and his wife must be floating on the air. It is wonderful to see that Paul, after all his great second place times, finally won and not only with a W.R. but the first sub 2:05 time. People will run faster. but his breakthrough will stand forever. Please convey my congratulations to Paul on behalf of myself and our entire organization.

Most people don remember, but I do since I was there at the finish line, that Andres Espinosa won the New York City Marathon in 1993 in a time of 2:10:04. And now he shatters the masters record in a time faster than when he won New York.. Please pass along my congratulations to Andres.

Take care and get a well deserved rest.

Best regards

Michael Nishi, The LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon
