Quote Of The Day
“I felt I was ready for a world record. But I didn’t think I would run 3:55. I was well prepared for tonight, though. I’m extremely happy.”
– Genzebe Dibaba, the younger sister of Tirunesh Dibaba, after crushing the indoor 1,500m world record with 3:55.17 in Karlsruhe, Germany. The previous world record was 3:58.28 set by Yelena Sobolova of Russia; Dibaba’s time is arguably the greatest 1,500m ever run as it is the fastest time indoors or out since 1997.
