Gidey smashes world record in Seven Hills race

Letesenbet Gidey of Ethiopia has broken the 15km world record at the Seven Hills race in Nijmegen. The 21-year-old crossed the line in 44 minutes 20 seconds in the Netherlands, taking more than one minute off the previous record. That mark of 45.37 had been set by Joyciline Jepkosgei of Kenya during the Prague Half Marathon in April 2017. Gidey won silver in the 10,000m at the recent World Championships in Doha behind Sifan Hassan of the Netherlands.
