Kenyan Faith Kipyegon had a dream season with three world records

(1500 m, 5000 m, Mile) and two Gold medals at the Budapest World Championships to his credit.

Kenyan Faith Kipyegon broke the 5,000m world record on Friday June 9, 2023 in Paris, just a week after having already broken the 1,500m (3'49''11) in Florence. In 14'05''20, Kipyegon (29 years old) improved the mark of the Ethiopian Letesenbet Gidey (14'06''62 in 2020).
