The stadium in Valencia was almost completely empty, but that did not stop two excellent runners from updating the world record table in athletics.
Fifteen years after Cannissa Cod made his name in the 10,000m record book, the booklet Joshua Chaptagay arrived and smashed the record in more than six seconds, after stopping the clocks in 26: 11.02 minutes.
It was a tremendous, sweeping and of course historic run, but the excited Chaptagay promised: “It’s just the foundation for what he has achieved later in my career. We keep running to remind everyone how exciting this run is.”

As mentioned, Chaptagay was not the only one to break a record. The Ethiopian runner-up to Tsenbat Gidey also stunned in the 5,000m, stopping the clock at 14: 06.62 minutes, and deleting from the table the name of her compatriot Trionsh Dibaba, 12 years after the latter’s record. “It really is a dream,” Gidi said after setting the record, “it’s a river achievement for Ethiopia.”
