Letesenbet Gidey breaks two-day-old 10,000m world record

“I expected to run the world,” Gidey said of its performance on Tuesday. “Again, I’ll try again, to run maybe 28:56.”
Gidey and Hassan did “Super Shoes” with a carbon fiber plate attached to the finger – a technology that is said to cause the record to collapse a few years ago.

They also use Wavelight technology – a flashing light on the side of the track that gives athletes a display of the speed they need to run in order to keep a world record.

Gidey crossed midway through at 14:42 on Tuesday, a little bit of world speed. But he raced his run at the end of the last and completed the final in 63 seconds to improve Hassan’s time.

Before Hassan, the 10,000m world record was set by Ethiopia’s Almaz Ayana at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
