The Speaker in the target in the port of Monte Carlo was his thing apparently, not sure: several Times he announced over the speaker, Julien Wanders I missed the world record in 13:29 minutes, one second to announce afterward: However, this performance is about 5 kilometers on the road to a world record.
Incomprehensible, his confusion was not. Because in the run-up to the race, the designated Wanders as a "Bonus" after his European record in the half marathon, had long been unclear what the time is actually a world record means. The international athletics Federation IAAF has decided, recently, also for the five kilometres on the road for a world to recognise the record.
The Association establishes the Central time
it was originally Assumed that a time under 13:42 would be enough for the first world record in this new category. Wanders was informed during the week, however, was now set to 13:30.
stranger Still: The European Association of the brand leads for a long time, Europe record-holder is currently the Irishman Alistair Cragg was in 2012 in Carlsbad (USA) 13:26 for 5 miles. And so the IAAF has now created the absurd Situation that the world record runner was slower than the holder of the European record.
A contender to the throne
Wanders is this matter – he is in a race to kilometers three with a Pacemaker, and then alone from the top of the delivery, once again an excellent time to run. And is paid to an for a world-record entry, is the more beautiful.
Wanders corresponds to the nickname he has received from his training colleagues. In Kenya, where Wanders completed his training, call him the other members of his running team Shin for some time "the king". And in fact, the Geneva applies as a contender for the throne of the long-distance runner. After all, he is only 23 years old.
