The world record attempt by the Ethiopia’s Berhane Adere in the 5000
metres will highlight the seventh edition of the IAAF Grand Prix Regione
Lombardia meeting - IAAF Grand Prix II - in Milan at the Arena Civica Gianni
Brera stadium on Wednesday 2 June.
Adere, who won the World title in Paris St.Denis in the 10,000 metres in
30:04.18 (African record) will be helped in this attempt by the Kenya’s
Isabella Ochichi, a solid specialist with a PB of 14:46.42 set in Hengelo on
Monday night and a sixth place in the 5000 metres at the Paris World
Championships, who will act as a pacemaker in Milan.
