Meserat Defar last week once again further reduces her world 5000m record! i don't think that will be the last time this year.
Just how fast can this elegant Ethiopian stallion really go?
I have always admire her sportsmanship and competitiveness which came to fore last year when she denied her compatriot Tirunesh Dibaba at the last stage of the Golden League even when Dibaba only needed one more victory to grab the $1 million jackpot.
Not surprising, with the pace she started off in Oslo even the worst pessimist in the stadium knew something was in the offing. She clipped almost eight seconds from her existing World 5000m record to finish in 14:16.63 (subject to ratification)
Well, it's Paris next on Friday, July 06. Do you think she can do it again? Watch this space for Defar again.
