IAAF.org: Shaheen tops the middle and long distance barnburners in Zurich

2006-08-19

intenSaif Saaeed Shaheen fell a little short on his assault on his own 3,000 m steeple World Record, but he did yet again display his absolute dominance of the event in Zurich.

With the clock reading 6:54 as he passed the bell, Shaheen was already more than a full straight of the track ahead of the chase pack, but more than two seconds behind the world record pace. He reached the finish in 7:56.54, a meet record, but just under his 7.56.32 world leader from Athens.

Bob Tahri of France won the race for second (8:15.05), ahead of Kenyan Wesley Korir (8:15.32) and European champion Jukka Keskisalo, who lowered his personal best to 8:16.74.
