Kenyan women break 4x1500 metres relay world record

NASSAU Bahamas (Reuters) - Kenya's women shattered their world record in the infrequently run 4x1500 metres relay when they clocked 16 minutes, 33.58 seconds at the inaugural IAAF World Relays on Saturday. The Hellen Obiri-anchored team crushed the previous record of 17:05.72 that a different Kenyan squad had set in Nairobi last month. The United States also dipped under the former record as the Americans ran 16:55.23 with Australia placing third in 17:08.65. (Reporting by Gene Cherry in Nassau, Bahamas; Editing by Ian Ransom)
