Kipyegon to race in Monaco

And with two 3:52 clockings already to her name this year, if she maintains such supreme form, the 1500m record will surely be in danger again this week.

Faith Kipyegon

World and Olympic 1500m champion Faith Kipyegon returns to the Wanda Diamond League in Monaco where she set her personal best time, an Kenyan record of 3:51.07 in last year's meeting, the fourth fastest time in history, and just one second outside Ethiopia’s Genzebe Dibaba's world record of 3:50.07 set in 2015.

She dominated the World Championships final in Oregon to win her second world title.

And with two 3:52 clockings already to her name this year, if she maintains such supreme form, the 1500m record will surely be in danger again this week.

She will have a strong field to help her to a fast time, with another five sub-four-minute runners in attendance, including the Ethiopian pair of Hirut Meshesha (the winner in Rabat and Rome) and Axumawit Embaye.
