Almaz Ayana: took women’s distance running to a new level with her 29:17.45

Almaz Ayana’s victory came as no surprise. The 24-year-old had clocked a world-leading 30:07.00 on her 10,000m debut at the Ethiopian trials in Hengelo, beating world silver medallist Gelete Burka and defending Olympic champion Tirunesh Dibaba, and with a 14:12.59 5000m also from this year she was clearly the athlete to beat.
