Kastor in record breaking form
Olympic marathon bronze medallist Deena Kastor was in record breaking form when winning the Jefferson Hospital Distance Run in Philadelphia. Kastor in perfect conditions, smashed the 21-year-old American half marathon record with a winning time of 1:07:53. That bettered by 41 seconds the previous US mark for the 13.1 miles distance achieved by Joan Benoit and also lowered the course record of 1:08:30 set by Kenya's Catherine Ndereba four years ago.
