SCOTT SETS 5000M PERSONAL BEST
Rising distance running star Dominique Scott smashed her personal best in the women’s 5 000m race at the Payton Jordan Invitational on Sunday morning (SA time).
Scott, who has been in spectacular form this season, finished 18th at the annual Stanford University meeting in 15:32.55.
She improved her career record, set last year, by nearly 10 seconds, climbing to fifth place in the SA all-time rankings.
Only Elana Meyer, Zola Budd, Gwen Griffiths and Colleen de Reuck have run faster over the 12-and-a-half lap distance.
