The success of Meraf Bahta continues.

She passed the Olympic limit of 10,000 meters in May - and did so with such a margin that it became a Swedish record.

Recently, the Swedish Olympic Committee (SOK) took her out of the Olympic squad.

Yesterday, she also passed the Olympic limit of 5,000 meters in Nice.

- It felt good and nice to cross the border!

Maybe not the best tactical race but it is slowly getting better and better.

I want to run even faster in the next race, says Meraf Bahta according to

Third best race

She finished fifth in Nice when she ran in at 15: 08.92.

It's her best time in five years and the third best ever.

The Olympic qualifying limit is 15:10.

Another Swede gave notice during the competition.

Vidar Johansson ran in 8: 22.78 in 3000 meters, one second from the Olympic qualifying limit for him.

SOK will make the next selection on June 21 and on June 30 the squad will be complete.
