Kenya’s Beatrice Chebet broke the women’s world 5km record at the Cursa dels Nassos road race in Barcelona.

The 23-year-old crossed the line in 14 minutes 13 seconds, beating Ethiopian Senbere Teferi’s women-only record by 16 seconds. Chebet also finished six seconds faster than the women’s world record in a mixed race, set by Ethiopia’s Ejgayehu Taye at the 2021 Cursa dels Nassos.

Taye, 23, was second in the race and Kenya’s Lilian Rengeruk, 26, third.

The win completed a successful year for Chebet, who won the world cross-country title Bathurst in February before claiming the inaugural world 5km title in Riga in October.
