Since the US allows dual citizenship, Lagat’s race records since May 2004 have been valid American records, as indicated in the USATF rules. A Bernard Lagat appearance on the field earned three American 1,500-meter records from 2005 races.
He also won the bronze medal in the 1,500-meter race of the 2000 Olympics and the silver medal in the same event of the 2004 Olympics. Lagat also participated in the 2001 World Championships, where he placed second in the 1,500-meter race, took home silver in the 1,500-meter race in 2003, won the gold in the 3000-meter race of the 2004 World Indoor Championships. A Bernard Lagat appearance in the 2007 World Championships featured him dominating both the 1,500-meter and 5,000-meter races, where he won gold. He is the first athlete to become world champion in both events at the same IAAF World Outdoor Championships.
