• HASSAN TARGETING EUROPEAN 5000M RECORD IN HENGELO
June 08, 2019
European champion Sifan Hassan hopes to provide one of the highlights of the FBK Games when she attempts to break her own continental 5000m record at the IAAF World Challenge meeting in Hengelo on Sunday (9).
Hassan set the current European record of 14:22.34 in Rabat last year. Instead of pacemakers, wavelight technology will be used in Hengelo to help the athletes follow the desired target pace.
“Running in the Netherlands is fun. I am starting the race on my European record pace and I want to break that. With the wavelight I can keep the pace I have to run.” said Hassan.
