Faith Kipyegon’s incredible journey to sporting greatness continued as she made history yet again on the track. The 29-year-old Kenyan mother had an extraordinary season, breaking records left and right, and now she has set her third world record of the year.

It all happened during a thrilling Diamond League meet in Monaco. The atmosphere was charged with anticipation as fans and fellow athletes were eager to witness what Faith would achieve next. Having already secured the world record for both the 1500m and 5000m, she was now determined to conquer the women’s mile in style.

As the starting gun fired, Faith Kipyegon surged ahead with an almost otherworldly grace. The crowd watched in awe as she blazed around the track, running like a true force of nature. Crossing the finish line, the clock showed a jaw-dropping time of 4:07.64 seconds. It was a moment that etched her name in the annals of athletics history as the fastest woman’s mile in history.

Interviewed after her record-breaking performance, Faith expressed her disbelief at the phenomenal feats she has achieved in this remarkable season.

I do not know how I am doing this because it just keeps going really in a good way, when I started this season, my goal was to just break the 1500m world record.

The sniper will seek to make history again when she competes in the 1500m and 5000m at the World Championships next month. At a single world championships (or Olympics), no woman has ever won both the 1500m and the 5000m.
