By: Ayumba Ayodi

Kenya's Beatrice Chepkoech is the new women's World 3,000m steeplechase record holder.

Chepkoech staged a bristling and elegant solo run to set the new World Record clocking 8 minutes and 44.32 minutes to win the race in Monaco on Friday night.

The feat by Chepkoech, the Commonwealth 1500m silver medallist, was enough to erase the previous record of 8:52.78 set on August 27, 2016 in Paris by Kenyan born Ruth Jebet of Bahrain.

The time also broke the national record time of 8:58.78 held by Cellphine Chespol set last year at Prefontaine Classic.
