Almaz Ayana of Ethiopia just shattered the WR in the 10,000 meters! She threw in a 66 second split mid-race and finished with a 68 second lap at the end of the race. She ripped 14 seconds off the previous world record. And 56 seconds off the record before that!!! (The 29:31 record in my opinion was a asterisk type WR.). Congrats to #MollyHuddle #USTAF for breaking the American record!
As a track and field fan and a running coach all I can say her effort is off the charts. Kudos to her and the intelligent and difficult training plan. #Olympics #RioOlympics #NBCOlympics
