5k World Record by Joshua Cheptegei
On Sunday morning in Monaco, running a 12:51, Joshua Cheptegei of Uganda Shattered the 5k World Record by 27 seconds. One month ago, en route to his 10k world record, the runner broke the record set by Kenya’s Rhonex Kipruto. Joshua Cheptegei is Ugandan begins 2020 by breaking the 5k world record at the Monaco Run in France. The ultimate goal of the year is the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
On 12th January, Kipruto set a new 10k World Record, but his first 5K which he ran in 13:18 was also the record-breaking mark technically. And the previous world record of 5K was established by Robert Keter at 13:22. In November 2017, the 5K only became an official World record.
About that Event
It seems unreal because Cheptegei’s time from Monaco is too fast. In 2019, no one can run faster on the track for some perspective. The previous World record was 5,000 m is 12:37.35 by Kenenisa Bekele, which was once unfathomably fast but could easily be broken by Cheptegei in the next coming month. He had sub 13 minutes in his mind that today, as his legs felt good during the race, he decided to go for it. To take many seconds of the records makes him too happy, and that was the greatest one first test for him in an important season.
In 13:18, second one place went to France’s Jimmy Gressier, a new European and third place goes to Nick Goolab who had broken the record of Mo Farah’s British record by running 13:27.
Wanders and Hassan World Record
Within minutes of each other during the Herculis 5K meter race along the Monaco coastline, Dutch champion Sifan Hassan and Swiss contender Julien Wanders set world 5Km records. They duly delivered on a picture-perfect winter day in Monaco both athletes had set to attempt the newly established 5K road standards. To the front of the field behind the pace-makers, gripping the rest of the field by the time she reached the end of the port, The European 5000m champion surged. In 14:44, she returned alone to cross the finish line, bettering both pending women’s only. Britain’s Laura Weight-man finished second in 15:29.
The 22-year-old Kenya, based on the runner, revealed that he had battled some illness in those days while leading into the race and was uncertain if it would detract from the performance. He told me that it was a great challenge for him because the only thing was he got flu three days ago, but above all, he was confident and had a great mindset.
One of the greatest American middle-distance runners named Steve. He helped establish the Carlsbad 5000 on the world stage when the race debuted in 1986. He threw down a World Record en route to winning the inaugural race, but he did not help win the inaugural race. Firmly, Steve would win the three consecutive Elite Invitationals, cementing himself as one of the all-time greats.
Eighteen years old Sammy Kipketer of Keyna shaved 12 seconds off the World best, to set the 5K road running World Record as recognized by the Association of Road Racing Statisticians, in his first trip to the United States, which stood for the 20 years until being broken in February 2020, in 2000. Kipketer’s record race time of 13:00 still stands as the Carlsbad 5000 course record, despite an attempt to improve his time the following year.
Deena Drossin and Meseret Defar
Deena Drossin dominated the women’s field and set a World Road Record in 14:54, on a breezy race day. After the first mile, she took the lead in the race and only increased her lead from there, despite a stacked elite field. Deena became the first American to set the 5K World Record at this race since 1986.
N 2006, Olympic 5Km track gold medalist Meseret Defar from Ethiopia set the Women’s 5K road race World Record in a time of 14:46 along with a great winning.
