1,500m world Olympic record holder Faith Kipyegon has again smashed the 5,000m world record of 14:05:20 at the Paris Diamond League.
Kipyegon set a new 1,500m 3:49:11 world record just a week ago at the Florence Diamond League.
The star was competing with athletes such as world record holder Letesenbet Gidey from Ethiopia and Silver medalist Margaret Chelimo.
“No, I did not think about the world record, I do not know how I made it,” said Kipyegon, who burst into tears after crossing the line.
“I just focused on the green light and tried to stay relaxed and enjoy the race.
“I just did the race and wanted to see what happens. When I saw that it was a world record, I was so surprised. It was all about giving my best. I just wanted to improve on my personal best, the WR was not my plan.”
Gidey finished second in 14:07.94 with another Ethiopian, Ejgayehu Taye, the world record holder over 5km, coming in third (14:13.31).
Kipyegon had been scheduled to return for a training camp in Kenya before returning to Europe for another potential record attempt over 1500m at the Monaco Diamond League meet on July 21.
But after her second world record, she said: “I do not know what will be next, I still have to discuss it with my coach and my management.
“I am so happy, I am very emotional right now and do not know what to say. If my body is healthy, anything is possible.”
She holds the first and third fastest times in history for the 1,500m, running her previous best of 3:50.37 in Monaco last August.
