NASSAU Bahamas (Reuters) – Kenya’s women shattered their world record in the infrequently run 4×1500 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.
