IAAF.org: Shaheen demolishes World Steeplechase record in Brussels

2004-09-04

Saif Saaeed Shaheen demolished the World 3000m Steeplechase record by 1.65 seconds, and Yelena Isinbayeva raised the women’s Pole Vault record to 4.92m to delight the capacity 47,000 crowd and extend the euphoric Athens Olympic atmosphere into the Stade Roi Baudouin for tonight’s Memorial Van Damme, TDK Golden League meeting.

The energy behind Shaheens 7:53,63 World record run was all the frustration he felt about missing out on the Olympics because of his ineligibility under IOC rules due to his change of nationality last year from Kenya to Qatar.
