Faith Kipyegon Sets New 1500m World Record

June 3, 2023

At the third Diamond League competition of the season on Friday in Florence, Faith Kipyegon broke the world record for women's 1500 metres by finishing in 3:49.11.

The Kenyan athlete, winner of the last two Olympic 1500m golds and the 2017 and 2022 world titles, bettered the previous mark of 3:50.07 set by Ethiopia’s Genzebe Dibaba in 2015.

After the race, Kipyegon's competitors gathered to congratulate her from all sides, with Laura Muir of Great Britain coming in second and Jessica Hull of Australia coming in third.

There was disappointment for Dina Asher-Smith, who pulled out of the women’s 100m at the last minute. Asher-Smith, third last time out in Qatar, had been among the favourites in the race but was forced to miss it after suffering from cramp in the blocks.
