Makhloufi (who is also leaving his manager) said it was an amicable break. He has been training in Kenya, apparently at times with Mo Farah. Other athletes in Aden's group include Genzebe Dibaba and Ayanleh Souleiman.
Just 5 days after setting the 1,500 WR, Dibaba ran at Stockholm's XL Galan to break the 8:23.72 record set by Meseret Defar in 2007. Including outdoor times, only 3 women have ever run faster: China's Wang Junxia, Qu Yunxia and Zhang Linli. Other big performances in the meet included Sweden's Abeba Aregawi running the second quickest indoor 1500 of all-time. She won by more than 10-seconds with 3:57.91 which would have broke the previous WR if Dibaba hadn't just ran 3:55. Mohammed Aman set the 800 World lead with 1:45.08 and Morocco’s Mohamed Moustaui got the win/WL in the 1500 in 3:35.0 over Ayanleh Souleiman with Silas Kiplagat and Nixon Chipseba way back.

Souleiman doubled at Worlds and thinks he would have won the 1500 if he hadn't ran the 800 (he didn't make the 1500 final). He's training partners with Olympic 1500 champ Taofik Makhloufi and two-time World Indoor 800 champ Abubaker Kaki. Souleiman will run the 1500 at World Indoors this year, but thinks the 5000 will be his best event in the future.
