A little over a week ago, Genzebe Dibaba was announced as the Pre Classic women's 5000 headliner.
Today,we discovered that she is no longer on the start list and thus almost certainly won't be racing. We reached out to Pre Classic press director Jeff Oliver for confirmation that Dibaba is out and he wrote, "I have not been notified of any drops in the W5K." That being said, someone at Pre has as she in the past was on the start list.
In the past at other DL events, when someone is pulled from the start list, they do not end up competing.
Dibaba hasn't competed since World Indoors on March 20th. She pulled out of a 10,000 in Dubai in April with a toe injury that was supposed to only keep her out for 2 weeks.
