That wasn’t the end of his 2022 success – Lamecha also set a world steeplechase best and an Ethiopian 1500m record (3:29.51), underlining his range.

Lamecha began his season in top form, winning the 2000m at Boston in a new meeting record of 7:29.09. Intriguingly, his 2000m split (4:58.44) matched his 3000m world record pace (4:58.38), suggesting maintained peak conditioning. All signs point to another spectacular Lamecha performance.
