  • Description

    AUSTRALIA'S RECORD-BREAKING DISTANCE RUNNER, RON CLARKE WON A 5,000 METRES RACE AT TAMPERE, FINLAND, LAST NIGHT (FRIDAY) IN 13 MINUTES, 40.8 - 15 SECONDS OUTSIDE HIS OWN WORLD MARK.

    CLARKE, WHO BROKE THE 10,000 METRES WORLD RECORD IN TURKU, FINLAND, TWO DAYS BEFORE, BETTERED HIS OWN 5,000 METRES WORLD RECORD WITH A TIME OF 13:25.8 IN LOS ANGELES EARLIER THIS MONTH.

    JOHN COOKE, OF BRITAIN, FINISHED SECOND IN LAST NIGHT'S RACE IN 14:14.6.

    CONDITIONS WERE FAR FROM IDEAL, AND WHEN RAIN BEGAN AFTER THE 4,000 METRES MARK HAD BEEN PASSED THERE WAS CLEARLY ON HOPE OF CLARKE BREAKING THE RECORD.
