CHICAGO (Reuters) - Like any true competitor, Kenya's Brigid Kosgei does not plan to coast on her latest accomplishment -- even if that happens to be running the fastest-ever women's marathon.

Hours after shattering Paula Radcliffe's 16-year-old world record, running the Chicago Marathon in two hours, 14 minutes and four seconds, the 25-year-old said she believes any number of competitors could beat her.

"If a lady can prepare good and they have no injury... they can reduce to reduce to 2:12 or one minute to 2:13," Kosgei told a news conference.

Faster-Than-Light Speeds Could Be Why Gamma-Ray Bursts Seem to Go Backwards in Time

  Faster-Than-Light Speeds Could Be Why Gamma-Ray Bursts Seem to Go Backwards in Time Time, as far as we know, moves only in one direction. But last year, researchers found events in some gamma-ray burst pulses that seemed to repeat themselves as though they were going backwards in time. Now, new research suggests a potential answer for what might be causing this time reversibility effect. If waves within the relativistic jets that produce gamma-ray bursts travel faster than light - at 'superluminal' speeds - one of the effects could be time reversibility.

"I'm still focusing to reduce my time again – if it's possible," Kosgei said. "If my body would be good (I could) reduce little by little, slowly."

While her year-to-year career improvement could hardly be described as "slow," it has been steady. In 2017 and 2018 she finished the Chicago Marathon in 2:20:22 and 2:18:35, respectively, after logging a year-end best time of 2:24:45 at Lisbon in 2016.

The 25-year-old arrived in the Windy City as an overwhelming favourite, having won the race in 2018.

Brigid Kosgei said she could go even quicker after breaking Paula Radcliffe’s world record by 81 seconds at the Chicago marathon.

Last month she clinched the unofficial best women's half marathon time of 1:04:28 at the Great North Run and earlier this year she became the youngest woman to ever win the London Marathon.

Her confidence showed at the start of the race, when she set an aggressive pace of 3:05.59 minutes per kilometre in the first 5km, causing commentators to fret that she had perhaps overextended herself.

"I come here to run my own pace, I don’t depend on someone."
