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.
