IAAF.org: Shaheen tops the middle and long distance barnburners in Zurich

Saif Saaeed Shaheen fell a little short on his assault on his own 3,000m steeple World Record, but he did yet again display his absolute dominance of the event in Zurich. With the clock reading 6:54 as he passed the bell, Shaheen was already more than a full straight of the track ahead of the chase pack, but more than two seconds behind the world record pace. He reached the finish in 7:56.54, a meet record, but just under his 7.56.32 world leader from Athens.
