London– In what could simply be described as the worst performance of her athletic career, Genzebe Dibaba of Ethiopia finished dead last in today’s women 1500m race at the IAAF World Championshipshere today.
Dibaba is the current world record holder for the 1500 m (both indoor and outdoor), the indoor 2000 m, the indoor 3000 m, the indoor 5000 m, the indoor mile, and the indoor two mile.
Although it was obvious that she struggled in the qualifying round, no one expected her to do this poorly in the final race.
