A sigh has lasted Sifan Hassan’s record in the 10,000 meters (29’06 ”82). If just two days ago she was able to lower the previous record of the Ethiopian Almaz Ayena in Rio 2016 (29’17 ”45) by more than ten seconds, yesterday, on the same stage (the Hengelo stadium, in the Netherlands), the Ethiopian Letesenbet Gidey, 23-year-old managed to do even better by running the distance in 29’01 ”03 (at 2:54 every 1,000 meters) during the Ethiopian Trails.

Holder of the world record in the 5,000m since October 7, 2020 in Valencia (14’06 ”62), Gidey won the silver medal in the 10,000m at the World Athletics Championships in Doha (Qatar), in 2019, behind Sifan Hassan. The duel is served.
