In the 53rd Ostrava Golden Spike, Genzebe Dibaba just missed the 2000 metres World record of 5:25.36 set by Sonia O’Sullivan twenty years ago. She was right on schedule at halfway in 2:42, but had to run the last 800 metres on her own for third on the all-time list in 5:27.50. She won the race by seven seconds from Senbera Teferi.
In the 3000 metres Nick Willis set a New Zealand record of 7:36.91, breaking John Walker’s 31 year-old time set at London’s Crystal Palace. Caleb Ndiku won in a world lead 7:31.66.
