Brigid Kosgei Sunday posted an impressive 2 hours, 14 minutes and 04 seconds at Chicago Marathon to set a new women's world marathon record.

The feat saw her erase the previous record of 2:15:25 held by Britain's Paula Radcliffe that had lasted 16 years.

Kosgei's world record time not only saw her defend her Chicago Marathon title but also set a new course record reducing Radcliffe's time of 2:17:18 set in October 13, 2002.
