IAAF.org: Benhassi ends Mutola’s Historic Streak in the 800m


Since the introduction of the IAAF World Rankings on 1 January 2001, only one athlete, Maria Mutola, has managed to retain the same position in the Event Rankings. Until today that is, because the Mozambican Number 1 ranking in the 800m has just come to an end after 237 weeks!

Morocco’s Hasna Benhassi takes over as the new Event leader, after finishing second at the Madrid meeting on Saturday. The Olympic silver medallist clocked 1:59.17 (1288 points), her fourth performance under 2 minutes this season, and once again beat Mutola.

Mutola could only finish third with 1:59.58 (1271 points) in Madrid, and has now lost to Benhassi on three straight occasions, including the Olympic final last August.
