News : Diamond League: Cheruiyot, ecital in Doha and achieves its 12th consecutive victory
We were looking forward to seeing him in action again. After a 2020 in which he left us some spectacular duels with Jakob Ingebrigtsen (now absent in Doha), Timothy Cheruiyot, one of the best runners in the history of athletics and probably the best of the present time, he has left us a new exhibition in his season premiere at the Doha meeting in the Qatari capital. It does not need adaptations, nor competition rhythm, nor does it save anything or stay in half measures. The Kenyan has given us a high level race. Well, he and the leading group formed by the Ethiopian Tefera, the Australian McSweyn and the Moroccan El Bakkali.
Brutal change of pace
Tefera has been the one who started pulling the hares behind. Brave, the African has managed to break the group and in the absence of more than one lap, the four aforementioned athletes have stood out. Before the final stretch, all four of us have arrived, but There Cheruiyot has made a huge change of pace, which has ended up prevailing with some slack and stopping the clock at 3.30.48, best world brand of the year. Far, yes, from his personal mark of 3.28.41.
Second has been McSweyn with 3.31.57 (best mark of the year) and third the specialist in 3,000 obstacles Soufiane El Bakkali, who has given a recital not to be a specialist in distance with his 3.31.95, best brand ever. The first three have pulverized the best mark of the year that the Qatari Musab had so far (3.32.41).
