"Since the mid-1960s, Kenyan men have earned the largest share of major honours in international athletics (track and field) at distances from 800 meters to the marathon; the vast majority of these Kenyan running stars have been Kalenjin. From 1980 on, about 40% of the top honours available to men in international athletics at these distances (Olympic medals, World Championships medals, and World Cross Country Championships honours) have been earned by Kalenjin."
Also, it's not under 2:10, but 2:10:30.
I'm very impressed.
Suzuki Kengo ran 2:04:56 at 2021-02-28.
A decent chunk of the fast American times (but certainly not all) happen at the Boston Marathon which is a point-to-point race (start and end are in sufficiently different places) and thus none of those times are recognized by World Athletics.
If you update the quiz in the future, it might be a good idea to filter out the point-to-point times (the ones with an "a" next to them in your source) since as far as I know nobody in the marathon community recognizes them as actual records for the sake of comparison. They're obviously still very impressive personal achievements but are fundamentally different from times obtained at more standard marathons.
