Rhonex Kipruto breaks world 10km record in Valencia


Kipruto clocks 26:24 to smash the global mark, while Sheila Chepkirui wins in 29:46, Julien Wanders improves European record and Callum Hawkins runs Scottish best

The men’s world 10km record fell and the women’s record came under threat on Sunday as Rhonex Kipruto and Sheila Chepkirui stormed to success at the10K Valencia Ibercaja.

World 10,000m bronze medallist Kipruto clocked26:24 while his fellow Kenyan Chepkirui ran 29:46 on a bright morning in the Spanish portcity.

Kipruto, who is aged just 20, also broke the official world 5km record with his half-way split of 13:18, although faster times (such as SammyKipketer’s 13:00 from Carlsbad in 2000) were set before it became an official world record distance.

Kipruto’ssecond half was an even faster 13:06 but is not eligible for record ratification and his overall time takes14 seconds off the world 10km recordset by Joshua Cheptegei in the same city just six weeks ago.

Given the current discussion around Nike'sVaporfly shoes,the world record performance was met with some comment on social media that Kiprutohad achieved it while running in adidas shoes, rather than Nike.
