She is to date the only woman who has won both 5000m and 10,000m Olympic gold medals. After her Olympic 10,000m victory in 2012, she started to concentrate on the Marathon. In 2014 she ran 2:20:35 at the London Marathon. After a baby break she came back in 2016 to win Olympic bronze over 10,000m in Rio de Janeiro.
Hanging on to Mary Keitany – but finally letting go – Dibaba finished second in the 2017 London Marathon in 2:17:56. Six months later she won the Chicago Marathon in 2:18:31 and a year after that she was second in Berlin with 2:18:55.
Due to the birth of her second child Dibaba has not raced in the last two years. “It’s my first competition since Allon was born last year. It’s an important race for me and I’m looking forward to finding out where I am in a racing situation,” she said.
