Kenya quartet beat the oldest world record
A Kenyan quartet beat the oldest world record in track, eclipsing the 32-year-old 4x1,500 meter mark of West Germany, AP reported.
William Biwott, Gideon Gathimba, Geoffrey Rono and Augustine Choge set a time of 14 minutes 36.23 seconds at the Van Damme Memorial on Friday. It's more than 2 1/2 seconds within the old record of 14:38.8 set by the West Germans in 1977.
The relay is never run at major championships and very rarely at big meets like the Golden League.
