Cherono proves too strong for Ethiopian duo
« on: July 11, 2007, 06:39:38 PM »
The first record of the 5th IAAF World Youth Championships was established in the first track final of the opening day.

Kenyan Mercy Cherono, who ran a well-judged race, was responsible for the fastest time in the five stagings of this event for the world's premier under-18 athletes, coming under lights at the Vitkovice Stadium in the Czech Republic's third city.

Her time of 8:53.94 shaved almost eight seconds from the previous record of 9: 01.61, which was set by her countrywoman, Sheila Chepkirui, at the last Championships in Marrakesh.
