Shokz, the global consumer electronics brand and one of the world’s leading pioneers in open-ear headphone technology, today announced the current, two-time Olympic marathon champion, Eliud Kipchoge, as a global brand ambassador.

The 39-year-old Kipchoge is widely regarded as one of the greatest marathon runners ever, having run four of the 10 fastest marathons in history, as well as having 11 World Marathon Major wins to his name. The Kenyan phenomenon, who in 2019 became the first person ever to run a sub-two-hour marathon, is bidding to rewrite the history books again this year, in an attempt to become the first athlete ever to win three consecutive Olympic marathon titles. His mantra: ‘No Human is Limited’ shows parallels with his illustrious career, inspiring everyone to break their limitations. Aligning with Shokz’ vision, Kipchoge joins forces with the world’s leading open-ear headphone brand to help both himself and his fellow ‘NN Running Team’ through their training regimes as they head toward this year’s Paris Olympic Games.

As part of the collaboration, Shokz will launch a limited edition version of OpenRun Pro, which features a grey and orange colorway, and the globally renowned ‘NN Running Team’ logo engraved on the headphones.
