Imagine beating the greatest marathoner of all time.

That’s what Evans Chebet did in April winning his second successive Boston Marathon as Eliud Kipchoge settled for sixth position.

But first things first, who is Evans Chebet?

Aged 35, Chebet is a 3- times major marathon runner who has competed at the highest level on the international stage.
