Ethiopia’s Yalemzerf Yehualaw clocked an incredible 29:14 at the Castellón 10K in Spain this Sunday, beating Joyciline Jepkosgei’s already-ratified record of 29:43, as well as Bahrain’s Kalkidan Gezahegne’s yet-to-be ratified record of 29:38, set last year.
“Today a dream came true. I felt really great in the race, the first 5km was very fast, I was struggling a little bit in the second 5km but I was still able to maintain a high pace,” Yalemzerf Yehualaw said.
Yalemzerf Yehualaw broke the half marathon world record last year by 19 seconds, although the time was not ratified by World Athletics as the course was 54 metres short.
