Vivek Singh, Jt. MD, Procam International, promoters for the Airtel Delhi Half Marathon presented Joyciline with her award ahead of the race, held on 21 October, in which she finished a close second to a new Ethiopian talent Tsehay Gemechu.
Her time of 1:04:51 has been officially recognised as the world record by the IAAF (International Association of Athletics Federations) and by AIMS, representing over 447 distance running events in 117 countries and territories. AIMS set the world record criteria for performances on the road later adopted by the IAAF. AIMS have been awarding athletes in recognition of world record breaking performances since 1985.
It is the second time AIMS has presented an award to Joyciline. She received the AIMS World Record Award in 2017 in recognition of her Half Marathon World Record of 1:04:52 set in the Sportisimo Prague Half Marathon on 1 April 2017. Joyciline was presented that award in advance of the Medio Maraton Valencia Trinidad Alfonso EDP, the race in which she then broke her own record.
