    Newcastle, England – Australia’s Craig Mottram and Ethiopia’s Meseret Defar capped their brilliant seasons on a glorious Tyneside afternoon today by becoming the fastest ever over 3Km on the roads, each beating the previous best around seven seconds.

    Just two weeks after outkicking Kenenisa Bekele to the World Cup title in Athens, Mottram demonstrated his finishing speed again to beat Kenya’s former world 5000m champion Eliud Kipchoge to the men’s Newcastle/Gateshead Great North 3Km Road Race title in 7:41.7, while Defar notched up her third world best of the year with a runaway victory in the women’s race, clocking 8:46.9.
