American Bernard Lagat ran a world leading 7:34.71 for 3000m earlier today in Karlsruhe, Germany to destroy a quality field that include Yenew Alamirew, the 22 year-old Ethiopian who ran 7:27.80 two years ago indoors.

Lagat’s run came up short of his 7:32.43 American record but it was an impressive run and was the fifth fastest by an American at 3000m/2 miles.

According to TFN’s list, this would be the 5th best 3000 mark (or equivalent from 2 miles) in US history.

In the thread “Lagat runs 7:34 to win” coach bigfoot asked for the splits.

Well thanks to youtube we have video of the race below. Lagat did not have a blistering final lap, he just wore down the field the final 800m with a strong pace. His final 4 laps were:

30.18
29.85
29.57
28.54 (58.11 final 400, 1:58.14 final 800).

Other highlights included Genzebe Dibaba destroying the field in the 1500m running 4:02.25 winning by over 9 seconds and country woman Meseret Defar running 8:35.28 to win the 3k by over 15 seconds.

The best finish was the men’s 800m. We’ve embedded it below the Lagat race and won’t tell you the results in case you want to watch it without knowing.
