What a dramatic finish! Ethiopia’s wonder athlete Tirunesh Dibaba put in a devastating last lap to retain her Olympic 10,000 meters title in London on Friday at a time of 30 minutes, 20.75 seconds.
Tirunesh was comfortable when the race reached the 5,000 meter mark. Her compatriot Workinesh Kidane was in the lead when they had five laps to go. Tirunesh from behind was by then carefully controlling the steps of two Kenyan pairs Sally Kipyego and Vivian Cheruiyot who eventually were forced to finish second and third, respectively.
Tirunesh, the double Olympic gold medalist in the 5,000m and 10,000m in Beijing, shook off the Kenyan pair who expressed full confidence of getting gold in an interview given to the international media hours before the decisive event began. Cheruiyot said, “Kenya will have its first gold today.” But at the end Ethiopia began counting her first gold with an amazing finishing speed.
Kipyego, the 2011 world silver medalist, finished six seconds behind, with Cheruiyot a further four seconds back for bronze.
Friday saw the first day of the Olympic track and field program.
Tirunesh earned the minimum time to go in to the Olympics a month earlier after taking a couple of years off but looked back at her best when her fearsome finish drove her to the fastest time of the year in Oregon in June. With Tirunesh’s gold medal, Ethiopia ranked 24th from the total of 204 countries.
