IAAF.org: Abeylegesse obliterates the womens

5000m World record in Bergen – TDK Golden League

12.06.2004

Friday 11 June 2004
Bergen, Norway – Turkey’s Elvan Abeylegesse tonight took apart the women’s 5000m World record, which had belonged to the little known Chinese Jiang Bo since 1997 (14:28.09), improving the mark by over three seconds to 14:24.68 at the Evergood Bergen Bislett Games.

After a solid two days of heavy rain in Bergen, the sun shone on Norway’s second city, golden rays which were more than matched by the sparkling competition at this the opening meeting of the TDK Golden League 2004. The venue for the action was the refurbished Fana stadium, which was full to its spectator capacity of 15,000.

Determined run blows away record and class field

The women’s 5000m contained much of the cream of the world’s distance running talent, including the Ethiopian trio of Tirunesh Dibaba (World 5000m champion), Meseret Defar (World Indoor 3000m champion) and Derartu Tulu (Olympic 10,000m champion). However, it was their former compatriot Elvan Abeylegesse, who represents Turkey, who was the star of tonight’s show.

Besides the initial pace of Oksana Belyakova of Russia (1000m in 2:49 - three seconds ahead of Jiang Bo’s record pace), and a spell at the front by Tirunesh’s sister Ejegayehu Dibaba (2000m 5:47.36 – behind schedule), the record run was created by a gutsy lone effort by the Turk, who was ahead of a pack of 7 opponents with six laps to go, and was never threatened again.

Ten seconds ahead at 4000m!
