Birell 10K Race

(2018) 18-year-old Rhonex Kipruto from Kenya runs 24:46 Saturday evening at the Birell Praque Grand Prix. This is the second fastest-ever road 10k, while his compatriot Caroline Kipkirui moved to third on the women’s world all-time list. Phonex Kipruto – who was third in Prague last year in 27:13 and then ran 27:08 in New York before claiming the world under-20 10,000m title in Tampere – clocked 26:46 for a dominant win. It was a Kenyan top three as Geoffrey Koech ran 27:18 in second and Mathew Kimeli 27:26 in third. A total of 11 athletes dipped inside 28 minutes.

The women’s race was much closer and Kipkirui won in

30:19 ahead of Fancy Chemutai (30:22) and Diana Chemtai Kipyokei (30:23) to complete another Kenyan clean sweep.

Running alone with his opponents rapidly dropping back, Kipruto went through 5km in 13:31 before clocking a negative split of 13:15 to take 22 seconds off his PB. Only his compatriot Leonard Komon has run a faster time with his world record 26:44 set in 2010
