Updated World Track And Field Top List On May 23

The latest world track and field leading marks for 2016 on Monday (23), as Dafne Schippers, Caster Semenya and Almaz Ayana were among the athletes posting world-leading times this past weekend.

World Championships 200m gold medallist Schippers continued her preparations for the Olympic Games sprint double with another impressive run over the half lap this season, after she posted a world-leading time of 22.02 (-0.3 m/s) seconds to win the women’s 200m at the FBK Games in Hengelo, on Sunday (22).

The Dutch star was improving her own previous world-leading time of 22.25 seconds, set in Gainesville, Florida, on 22 April.

She also has the second fastest time in the world this season over 100m, at 10.83 seconds.

South Africa’s Caster Semenya was on fire again in Europe, after the former world 800m champion clocked a 2016 world-best of 1:56.64 to set a meeting record at the IAAF Diamond League meeting in Rabat on Sunday.

The time was also the third fastest time ever from Semenya, who will enter the Olympic Games in Rio, Brazil, later this summer as the brightest favourite to win the women’s 800, time and improved from the silver she won at the London 2012 Games.

Ethiopia’s Almaz Ayana attempt to break the women’s 5000m world record fell short but she did managed to run a world-leading time of 14:16.31 to secure the win at the meeting in Rabat.

Also posting world-leading marks this past week were American Georganne Moline, who ran 53.97 to become the first woman to break 54-seconds for the 400m hurdles this season, while Abdelaati Iguider ran 7:36.85 in the men’s 3000m and Conseslus Kipruto improved the men’s 3000m Steeplechase world best for the year to 8:02.77.
