Faith Kipyegon has done it again and this time she broke the 1 Mile record in Monaco Diamond League at a record time of 4:07:64.
The new world record is five minutes faster than the previous world record set by Kipyegon’s rival Sifan Hassan at the same track back in 2019.
29-year-old Faith Kipyegon is surely on a toll of breaking world records after accomplishing the first one in June in the 1,500 meters Florence Diamond League finishing at a record time of 3:49.11.

One week later, Kipyegon was at it again at the Paris Diamond League beating world record holder Letesenbet Gidey in the 5,000 meters.
Congratulating Faith Kipyegon was President William Ruto who noted that Kenya celebrates her for being the best athlete during our lifetime.
“Another World record has fallen. Faith Kipyegon’s peerless talent, supreme tenacity and tremendous athleticism has lit up the world again this time in the 1-Mile Monaco Grand Prix. Kenya celebrates Faith for being among the best athletes in our lifetime,” said President Ruto
