Records Fall at Adidas Track Classic

Ethiopia's Defar Sets Women's Two-Mile Record

Meseret Defar, a slight and wide-eyed 23-year-old from Ethiopia who vomited two minutes before the start of her two-mile race Sunday at the Adidas Track Classic at the Home Depot Center, went out and set a world record.Orange juice, hash browns, bread and cheese had been the breakfast that made her sick. But instead of dropping out, as she feared she might, Defar finished as the crowd of 6,208 roared at her time of 9 minutes 10.47 seconds.
