Suzy Walsham and Piotr Lobodzinski smashed their course records at the Dubai Holding SkyRun this morning.

In the penultimate leg of the Vertical World Circuit, the world champions each took a massive chunk off their respective best times at Jumeirah Emirates Towers.

Walsham (AUS) completed the 1,334-step course in 8:03, taking 13 seconds off the 8:16 record she set in 2017.

The victory was the second in five days for Walsham, after she won in commanding fashion in Shanghai last Sunday.

Top five women:

1. Suzy Walsham (AUS) 8:03
2. Laura Manninen (FIN) 8:48
3. Huan Wang (CHN) 8:59
4. Lyubov Novgorodtseva (RUS) 9:15
5. Sarah Frost (GBR) 9:17

Lobodzinski bounces back

After the disappointment of having his unbeaten run in 2019 ended by Mark Bourne in Shanghai last Sunday, Piotr Lobodzinski came right back with the perfect performance to demonstrate why he is still the finest tower runner in the world.

The Polish star had said before the race that he felt in good shape and was planning a sub seven-minute finish. And he was absolutely true to his word.

His previous best time of 7:09 was smashed as he crossed the finish line in a new magnificent record of 6:55.
