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 friidrott.se.
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.
