  Paula Radcliffe breaks 10K world record
Updated 24 February 2003, 15.56
Paula Radcliffe
Paula Radcliffe has broken yet another world record - this time for the 10-kilometre road race.

The marathon star and BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2002 won the race in a speedy 30 minutes and 21 seconds.

The race was in San Juan, Puerto Rico where it was very windy and humid.

Faster than ever

European Championship 10,000m gold medal

But it didn't affect the 28-year-old's speed.

Asmae Laghzaoui had owned the record with a 30:29 win in the 2002 New York Mini Marathon.

This time the Moroccan was second in 31:36.

"I knew from the halfway point on that I was way below my best time," a thrilled Paula said.
