Beatrice Chebet Shatters 10,000-Meter World Record at Prefontaine Classic

Posted : 26 May 2024

Beatrice Chebet of Kenya made history at the Prefontaine Classic meet by smashing the world record in the 10,000 meters, crossing the finish line in an astounding 28 minutes and 54.14 seconds. This remarkable achievement surpassed the previous record of 29:01.03 set by Ethiopia's Letesenbet Gidey in June 2021, establishing Chebet as the new standard-bearer in long-distance running.


Expressing her gratitude to her support system, including her management and coach, Chebet credited their unwavering encouragement for her stellar performance. Despite her awe-inspiring feat, she remained humble, acknowledging the synchrony between her body's response and her rigorous training regimen. Notably, this race marked Chebet's return to the 10,000 meters since 2020, a comeback marked by an unparalleled display of athleticism and determination.


Chebet's dominant performance saw her pulling ahead with three laps remaining, culminating in a resounding victory that secured her qualification for the 10,000 meters at the upcoming Paris Olympics. With her eyes set on potential success in both the 5,000 and 10,000 meters, Chebet's world-record-breaking run not only etched her name in the annals of track and field history but also solidified her status as a formidable contender on the global stage.
