5000 metres world record progression

From Wikiafripedia, the free afripedia (encyclopedia)
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Current men's world record holder Kenenisa Bekele competing in the 5000 m in Paris in 2006

The official world records in the 5000 metres are held by Kenenisa Bekele with 12:37.35 minutes for men and Tirunesh Dibaba with 14:11.15 minutes for women. Both are from Bekoji, Ethiopia.

The first world record in the men's 5000 m was recognized by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) in 1912. As of January 2014, 35 world records have been ratified by the IAAF in the event.[1]

The first world record in the women's 5000 m was recognized by the IAAF in 1981. As of January 2014, 13 world records have been ratified by the IAAF in the event.[2] Before the event was recognised by the IAAF as an official world record event, the 3000 metres was the most common international women's long-distance track event. However, women did sometimes compete over 5000 m before its addition to the World Championships and Olympic programme in 1995 and 1996, respectively.[3]
