    Chespol stuns with world U20 record in Eugene – IAAF Diamond League

The 18-year-old came back from near-disaster at the penultimate water jump to win in 8:58.78, the second-fastest run of all time and a world U20 record*.

  • Five Reasons to be at the Joan Samuelson Night (Friday, May 26) at Pre Classic

    Five Reasons to be at the Joan Samuelson Night (Friday, May 26) at Pre Classic

Surely the adventurous American, who had just had arthroscopic surgery less than two weeks before the Olympic marathon Trials, had used up all of her good luck.
