Kenyan-born Olympic champion Ruth Jebet obliterated the 3000m steeplechase world record Saturday as Dafne Schippers got back to winning ways in the 200m at the Paris Diamond League. On a sultry Parisian evening, Jebet's performance was the standout, the now-Bahraini having transferred allegiance to the Gulf state in February 2013 as a 16-year-old. Jebet clocked 8min 52.78sec, smashing the previous record of 8:58.81 achieved by Russian Gulnara Galkina at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
Patrick Reed edged into a two-shot lead at The Barclays Championship on Friday, firing a three-under-par 68 to take a slender advantage into the weekend action.

Reed was left ruing what could be costly dropped shots over the closing stages of a mostly polished round.
