Whether it stands as a world record or not, Beth Potter’s time at the Podium 5km – now confirmed at 14:41 – is a red-hot performance by anyone’s standard.

In 2017, Beth Potter won the British women’s 10,000m Championships. She was magnificent. Beth then concentrated on the Triathlon, as she was able to find a sponsor. This past weekend, Beth Potter broke the world record at 5000m on the roads with a time of 14:41!
Potter 14:41 WR
Beth Potter did a 3.5hr bike ride this morning to escape her constantly bleeping phone, but she then chatted to me about her spectacular Podium 5km run and why “proving the doubters wrong” put as much of a spring in her step as her new Asics shoes did. https://t.co/ekYsSFzIo4

BARROWFORD (GBR, Apr 3): Beth Potter went two seconds under Beatrice Chepkoech’s world 5km record with 14:41 at the Podium 5km, but the time is unlikely to be ratified. AW has questioned whether doping officers were present, as well as whether other technical requirements were met. International triathlete Potter took 43 seconds off her PB as she finished 16th overall in the mixed ‘B’ race. Mhairi MacLennan was the second-fastest female, in another race, with 15:47, while Revere Walcott-Nolan (15:50) was the third quickest overall. Tom Mortimer won the ‘A’ race in 13:39, beating Phil Sesseman by a second as Andrew Heyes was third with 13:46.
Congratulations @beth_potter! Silver & Gold in @worldtriathlon ITU World Cups is a fine way to build a case for @BritTri support moving forward >>> https://t.co/XA3qvZDar8 pic.twitter.com/KE3Azaxy8S
