News : Jepchirchir World Record in a bumpy race in Gdynia
What a race we have lived to open fire in Gdynia. We already warned that it was the only international competition of 2020 due to the context of the coronavirus, only this had survived a year in which little by little the big events that were planned have been falling. The women’s event has been a real madness, amazing. Óscar Fernández told us in the previous one that we would very likely see an avalanche of personal brands and records on the subject of shoes with the new regulations and this other competition that exists for not falling out of the fight to have the best ‘tires’ of the grill. And so it has been.
Kenyan Peres Jepchirchir It has been imposed in a very tight final to the German Kejeta and the Ethiopian Yehualaw. What a sprint for the African to outrun her rivals at the same finish line and achieve the World Record for distance (in races with only women, since the world record with male hares continues to be for the Ethiopian Ababel Yeshaneh (1 -04.31). Jepchirchir set a time of 1.05.16 and broke the World Record that she held a few days ago in Prague (1.05.34). Kejeta entered two seconds later (1.05.18) and Yehualaw at 1.05.19 It was a bumpy race with falls for two of the big favorites, Yeshaneh and Jepkosgei.
The best Spanish has been Marta Galimany, who has made a personal mark (1.11.08). Wonderful season of the Catalan. Elena Loyo was 56th (1.12.44) and Laura Méndez 61st with a personal best as well (1.12.58).
