It’s Jacob Kiplimo again!

His 7.26.64 is a national record for Uganda, World lead and Diamond League record.
It is also the fastest time since 2007!
He beat Jakob Ingebrigtsen who ran 7:27.05, the ninth in history at the Stadio Olympico in Rome.
Stewart McSweyn ran 7:28.02 to smash Craig Mottram’s Australian record.
