FBK After Summer Competition Results & Race Video
October 10, 2020
The first FBK After Summer Competition track and field / atheltics meeting was held tonight in Hengelo. On a cool (high 40s) and rainy night, Faith Kipyegon came up well short of her goal in of the women’s 1000 world record of 2:28.98 as she ran just 2:32.82. Yomif Kejelcha (13:12.84) and Stewart McSweyn (13:16.05) were also nowhere near their goals of a pb in the 5000.
The story of the night belonged to reigning world 1,500 and 10,000 champ Sifan Hassan. She attacked Almaz Ayana’s 29:17.45 world record as she went out in 14:37 before fading to a European record time of 29:36.67, as Paula Radcliffe‘s European record of 30:01.09 which had stood since 2002 was destroyed. Outdoors, she is now the 6th fastest women in history at 1500, 9th fastest ever at 5000, 4th fastest ever at 10,000, and 10th fastest ever at the half marathon.
Sifan Hassan's personal bests:
1500m: 3:51.95 (Euro record)
1 mile: 4:12.33 (world record)
3000m: 8:18.49 (Euro record)
5000m: 14:22.12 (Euro record)
10,000m: 29:36.67 (Euro record)
Half marathon: 65:15 (Euro record)
