HUGE 5000m for Stewy

13:05.23 ??????

Stewart McSweyn has obliterated his previous best in the 5000m, running an incredible 13:05.23 at the Brussels Diamond League meet, before falling as he crossed the line and dislocating his shoulder.

Only one Australian has ran faster over the distance, with Stewart sitting just underneath the great Craig Mottram on the Australian All Time rankings. Stewart took more than 14s off his previouis best of 13:19.96 from the Australian Championships back in February, giving him a clean sweep of personal bests from the 1500m - 10000m across the European season.

Next up is the IAAF Continental Cup in Ostrava from the 8-9 September where Stewart will rep the Asia-Pacific team in the 3000m..
