Olympic Fever- Women 10000m, Tirunesh Dibaba

Olympic Fever- Women 10000m- Tirunesh Dibaba
Put your money on this Ethiopian superstar in the 10000m next month (even though she has had a torrid time with injuries since 2008) Arguably the fastest finisher in the history of women's distance running-earning her the nickname 'Baby-faced Destroyer'. She is the defending champion in both the 5000m and 10000m but may just be only to defend her 10000m title at the London Olympics-as the Ethiopian Federation have gone with 2012 times alone in picking the 3 athletes for each slot (Tirunesh's time in the 5000m is only 4th fastest this year-because of her long recuperation from injury) This decision is not widely popular (rightly so in my opinion) Watch a clip of how she 'destroys' a field below
