Birmingham (dpa) - Germany's great running talent Konstanze Klosterhalfen has now broken the 34-year-old miles record.

The 22-year-old from Bayer Leverkusen won the race over the classic 1609 meters at the Diamond League meeting in Birmingham in 4: 21.11 minutes. Klosterhalfen thus remained 48 hundredths of a second below the previous national record of Ulrike Bruns: The Potsdam had run on the non-Olympic distance on 21 August 1985 in Zurich 4: 21.59 minutes.

For Klosterhalfen, who has been training in the controversial Oregon project under Alberto Salazar in the USA since last year, it was already the third German record within two months: at the end of June, she powdered her own 3,000-meter record at Stanford, California almost ten seconds (8: 20.07 minutes).

At the German Athletics Championships she won the 5000 meters in early August in the record time of 14: 26.76 minutes; the previous record had been held by Irina Mikitenko (14: 42.03) for 20 years.
