Geoffrey Kamworor of Kenya took 17 seconds off the world record at the Copenhagen Half Marathon on Sunday, winning the IAAF road race in 58:01.

The 26-year-old Kenyan returned to the Danish capital, the scene of his first of three world half-marathon titles, in a bid to improve on the world record of 58:18 set in Valencia last year by Abraham Kiptum.

His goal of breaking the world record was such an important target that he passed up the opportunity to compete at the IAAF World Athletics Championships 2019.
