Gudaf Tsegay and Mondo Duplantis amaze with world records in Eugene

Ethiopia’s Gudaf Tsegay and Sweden's Mondo Duplantis both broke world records on a sensational afternoon of action at the Wanda Diamond League Final in Eugene on Sunday (17 SEP).

First, Tsegay set the second senior world record of her career and her first outdoors, smashing the world 5000m record with a remarkable 14:00.21* run.


In the second track final of packed second day of action at Hayward Field, the world 10,000m champion took almost five seconds off the world record of 14:05.20 that Faith Kipyegon set in Paris in June as part of a record spree that also saw the Kenyan set global marks for the 1500m and mile.

Back in the stadium where he broke the world record to win his first senior world title in 2022, the pole vault superstar added another centimetre to his global mark, clearing 6.23m* on his first attempt for the seventh world record of his career.
