GEZEBE DIBABA

Having survived a turbulent 2017 season, Gezebe Dibaba bounced back into global reckoning by snatching her third consecutive World Indoor title in the women’s 3000m, which was the final event on Day 1 of the 2018 World Indoor Championships in Birmingham.

It was a stacked line-up that had the likes of Dibaba, reigning 5000m World Champion Hellen Obiri, Portland 2016 GOLD medallist in the 1500m Sifan Hassan, and Great Britain’s Laura Muir in action.

Dibaba, who is the World Record (WR) holder in the event, ran a tactical race, taking things easy in the first lap but changing gears halfway into the race as she moved from 14th position to 2nd, just behind Germany’s Konstanze Klosterhalfen, before taking charge of the race, storming to victory in 8:45.05.
