VIDEO: Duplantis and Tsegay win a world-record win in the Diamond League final

Gudav Tsegay broke nearly five seconds off the world record in the women’s 5,000m flat run, Armand Duplantis improved the world record in the men’s pole vault to 6.23 metres, while Jakob Ingebrigtsen set another European record on day two of the Diamond League Series Finals track and field in Eugene on Sunday.

On the closing day of the Diamond League, there was no shortage of the best results in the world this year, individual bests, with Ingebrigtsen once again setting a European record, and Tsegay and Duplantis also setting a world record.

With his time of 14:00.21 minutes, two-time world champion Tsegai handed over the world record of 14:05.20 minutes set by Kenya’s Faith Kipyegon on June 9 in Paris. The African runner entered the final lap with a large lead and was close to breaking the world record for under 14 minutes.

Godaf Tsegay set an astonishing world record in the 5,000 metres

Olympic pole vault champion Armand Duplantis (23 years old) broke the world record for the seventh time in total. This year he tried several times at a height of 623 centimetres, but he has not succeeded so far.
The two-time world champion Swede rose 21 cm after 6.02 m and was the first to reach the world height record.

Duplantis won his first world championship title in Eugene last year, when he won the final with a distance of 621cm – also a world record – and then in August this year he triumphed at the world championships in Budapest with a distance of 6.10 metres.

The series of excellent results continued at the 3000 metres, where Norwegian Olympic champion Ingebrigtsen was extremely prepared with his strength, as he had already crossed the finish line and, judging by the photo of the finish, was only 0.01 seconds ahead of Ethiopian Yomif Kegelcha, who also set a continental record.

The fate of the gold medal was also decided in the final steps of the 800 meter race. At this distance, as in the Budapest World Cup, he faced Canadian world champion Marco Arup and Kenyan Emmanuel Wanyonyi, this time the World Cup silver medalist. Wanyonyi was the fastest.

In the men’s discus throw, Australian Matthew Denny set a national record with a personal best of 68.43 metres, beating his Slovenian competitor Christian Ceh behind him.

Shericka Jackson also achieved a double, after winning the 100 meters on Saturday, and was unable to find a winner in the 200 meters either.
