Article source: Athletics


Kenya's Beatrice Chepkoech destroyed women's 3000m World record with a shocking 8:44.33 performance at Monaco Diamond League on Friday, July 20. 

The 27-year-old Chepkoech, who finished 4th at Rio Olympics in 2016, shaved more than 15 seconds from her own personal best and 8 seconds from the previous World record.

"I am so grateful," said new world record holder Chepkoech.

"I said from the beginning, from the first lap, and I was watching the time, and I knew I was going to break the world record."

The old steeplechase World record belonged to Ruth Jebet, a Kenyan born Bahreini athlete, that failed an out of competition doping test for EPO.
