    Carlsbad, California, USA – In her fifth appearance at the Carlsbad 5000, 23-year-old Meseret Defar of Ethiopia yesterday (1) became the first woman to successfully defend her title in the race in its 22-year history.

    The Olympic 5000m track champion won the 5km road race in a time of 15:01, falling short in her attempt at also breaking the unofficial World best for the second year in a row.

    In 2006, Defar broke the unofficial World best at Carlsbad, shattering the previous mark by five seconds when she ran 14:46. She had hoped to run 14:00 this year.
