Mizuki Noguchi broke two world records at the 32. real,- BERLIN-MARATHON: at 25 and 30 k. The split times of the 27-year old Japanese were faster than the former records. She split at 25 k 1:22:13 hours and at 30 k a 1:38:49. With her finishing time of 2:19:12 hours Noguchi broke the course-, the Asian- and the Japanese record.

The two world records are still unoffical, because the referees have to approve it. But even if the official split times will be one or a couple of seconds slower, it would be still a world record. The previous best times were held by the Japanese Naoko Takahashi, which she had run in Berlin too. She had run the 25 k in 1:22:31 and the 30 k in 1:39:02 hours in 2001. Now Mizuki improved the 25 k record by 18 seconds and the 30 k record by 13 seconds.

Britain’s Paula Radcliffe was running the Flora London Marathon 2003 and passed 30 k faster, but the course is going down more than allowed at that point (1 metre per k). At the certain mark there has to be proper set of official judges, who are normally at a marathon race only at the finish. Only then the World Athletics Federation IAAF accepts the split time as a world record. At the real,- BERLIN-MARATHON race director Mark Milde decided to have officials at both marks in advance.
