Ethiopia’s Dibaba named female IAAF World Athlete of the Year
Ethiopian middle- and long-distance runner Genzebe Dibaba has been named the female IAAF World Athlete of the Year in 2015.
Dibaba set a world indoor record for 5000m, clocking in at 14:18.86, before breaking the African record for 1500m in Barcelona with a time of 3:54.11.
She then broke the world record in Monaco, finishing in just 3:50:07 on the 17th of July.
The 24-year-old then won all three of her 1500m races at the 2015 World Championships in Beijing, as she clinched a gold medal.
Her medal haul in China also included the bronze medal in the 5000m event.

It is worth mentioning that Dibaba just missed out on the female WAOTY in 2014.
