The elite women kick off the Great South Run

TIRUNESH DIBABA had been hoping for a strong result to end her racing year on a high note and on a sunny but blustery morning the Ethiopian distance running great signed off for 2016 with a dominant win.

The three-time Olympic gold medallist headlined a weekend which saw 25,000 runners take to the roads of Portsmouth and South sea for four different events – the 10-mile run preceded by a 5km plus Junior and Mini Great South Run events the day before.

Under bright blue skies and with the wind behind runners for the final two-mile stretch along the seafront rather than the more usual headwind, Dibaba led an Ethiopian one-two on her 10-mile debut. She clocked 51:49 for victory, while Chris Thompson became the first British winner of the men’s race since Mo Farah in 2009 after running 47:23 to beat Andy Vernon in a battle of the Brits.
