Dibaba crossed the finish line in a very quick time of 3:57.45 (2nd fastest time behind her own WR) to win the women’s 1500m race, well ahead of Germany’s Konstanze Klosterhalfen who finished in 4:04.00. Dibab was also joined by her younger sister, Anna, who finished the race in 10th with a time of 4:27.64.

In the men’s 3000m, Hagos Gebrhiwet kicked away from the field on the last lap to win the race in a world leading time of 7:37.91, ahead of countryman and 2016 world champion, Yomif Kejelcha, who ran a personal best of 7:38.67. This was Gebrhiwet’s first race in 10 months, who had to skip last year’s outdoor season due to injury. He now seems to be in great form and should be the one to watch at this year’s IAAF World Indoor Championships in Birmingham.
