April 3, 2022. ALMAZ AYANA shown she is indeed on her way back to top fitness. Since injury in 2017 she ran just one race a slow 3000m in 2019. On April 3, 2022 she showed tremendous improvement by placing 5th in a 1/2 marathon in Madrid, Spain with a time of 1:08:22. While she was exactly one minute behind the Kenyan winner this performance signals a great chance to Almaz returning to top track form in 2022.
Almaz is known for throwing in surges that her ELITE World Class competitors refuse to follow. Can she return to TOP form and remain healthy and do the same to Letesenet and Siffan in the 10000m?
