Tirunesh Dibaba on course for distance double: LONDON OLYMPI

Unread post by ኦሽንoc » 07 Aug 2012 10:31

Defending champion Tirunesh Dibaba of Ethiopia qualified fastest for the final of the 5000m on Tuesday as she chases a second consecutive Olympic long distance double.

The Ethiopian, who has already won the 10000m in London, won her 5000m heat in a time of 14min 58.48sec, edging out Athens 2004 gold medallist Meseret Defar (14:58.70)

Image

Double 2011 world champion Vivian Cheruiyot of Kenya, who finished third in the last week's 10000m, also qualified for Friday's final in 15:01.54.
Dibaba was the first woman to complete the 5000-10000 double in Beijing and successfully defended her 10000 title on the opening day of the track and field programme in London.
Defar said her plan was to save energy and qualify for the final.
"It was a good race and everything went according to plan. I am ready for the final," she said.
"I have a good chance. I'm in good shape and I'm feeling fine, but there are other strong athletes in the field and I will never stop fighting for it."
Other qualifiers include Viola Kibiwot, who has twice won the world cross country title, and Kenya's Sally Kipyego, who took silver in the 10000m in London.
The women's 5000m became an Olympic event at the Atlanta 1996 Games, succeeding the 3000m. Ethiopia lead the table with two gold and three bronze medals.

Athlete Fantu Magiso withdrawn from Olympics : LONDON OLYMPI

Unread post by ኦሽንoc » 07 Aug 2012 10:45

LONDON (Reuters) - Ethiopia's Fantu Magiso, one of the favourites for the Olympic women's 800 metres title, has been withdrawn from the Games, team officials said on Monday.
"Magiso won't be running in this Olympics after injuring her leg here during training," Ethiopian Federation technical manager Dube Jilo told reporters.

Image

Magiso was the only female 800m runner in Ethiopia's team and was highly tipped to win the gold after beating Kenya's Olympic champion Pamela Jelimo in the Rome Diamond League meeting in June and having another impressive win at the New York Diamond League.
On a more positive note, Ethiopia's Tirunesh Dibaba has confirmed she will race in the 5,000 metres as she attempts to repeat her double from 2008.
Dibaba, who won the 10,000m in London on Friday, has been entered in place of Genet Yalew alongside Meseret Defar and Gelete Burika in a formidable team.
