Meseret Defar of Ethiopia missed the indoor world record by less than half a second as she won
the 5 000 meters race at the GE Galan in Stockholm on Wednesday.
Defar clocked 14:24.85, just 0.48 seconds short of the record she set at the same venue last year.
Cuba's Dayron Robles won the 60 meters hurdles in 7.49 seconds and countryman Cuban Alexis Copello

won the men's triple jump with a leap of 17.23 meters, six centimeters better than world-record holder Christian Olsson of Sweden.
Viktor Kuznetzov jumped a season's best 8.09 meters to win the men's long jump ahead of fellow Ukrainian Andreiy Makarchev.

Croatia's Blanka Vlasic cleared 2.01 meters to win the women's high jump, while Debbie Dunn outran fellow
American Ebonie Floyd to win the women's 400 meters in 52.35 seconds.
