Sydney, Australia; March 13 2021 –  It was a night for the history books at the Sydney Track Classic as world and national records tumbled, Tokyo qualifying standards were set and Australian 5000m national titles were won.

Setting the tone for the night was Michael Roeger (SA, Philo Saunders) who in blistering heat ran 14.00.25 to break the 5000m T46 world record. Placing third in the 5000m Open B Final, Roeger slashed more than six seconds off his previous world record set in 2018.
