dibaba 2

One of BP’s favourite athletes, Ethiopia’s Genzebe Dibaba, has made another mark on the world athletics stage in winning the women’s 1500m final in Beijing.

Dibaba’s winning time of 4:08 was stunningly slow – but her final blistering 800m of 1:57 was too much for the rest of the field even after a torpid first 700m.

Up next in Beijing for the younger sister of Tirunesh Dibaba is the 5000m – more her event than the 1500m.

This is worth nine and a half minutes of your time. Great race, great result, great commentary. Bolt just edges Gatlin at the line, winning in 9.79, only 0.01 sec ahead of Gatlin.

Canada’s 20-year old phenom Andre de Grasse clocks 9.91 to finish third in this world-class field, tying (!) with the US’s Bromell and finishing ahead of Asafa Powell and Mike Rodgers. We’ll see more of de Grasse soon enough, everyone knows.
