New Australian record in the 3000m. 7 minutes 28.02 seconds, which is the 17th fastest 3000m of all time.

Uganda's Jacob Kiplimo claimed the victory in 7:26.64 - the fastest time in the world this year - and Norwegian Jakob Ingebritsen (7:27.05) was second.

yea i saw that. pretty sick.

some seriously fast times being run this year. olympics woulda been nuts.. wondering if they'll be able to "peak again" for next year.

jakob still crushing it.

Norway is producing some great track athletes atm. Jakob Ingebritsen is only 20 years old  :o

Stewart Mcsweyn is in career best form. He just broke another Australian National Record in the 1500m at the Wanda Diamond League in Doha in a time of 3:30:51! If he keeps improving he might have a chance of a medal at the Olympics.
