Catriona Bisset has broken her own Australian 800m record, clocking 1:58.09 in Poland.

Bisset finished second, with Ethiopian Freweyni Hailu winning in a fast 1:57.57. Bisset’s time ranks her (on time) 4th fastest in the world so far this year. Bisset is now widely considered a serious threat for a podium finish at the Tokyo Olympics.

  1. Hailu Freweni (Ethiopia) who beat Catriona Bisset is listed above with a birth date of 1/02/12, meaning that she is 9 years old. I suggest this may be a typo or a mistake
