Genzebe Dibaba to compete at IAAF Zurich Diamond League

Genzebe Weltklasse

Genzebe Dibaba (Ethiopia) was one of the latest stars to sign up for Weltklasse Zürich 2015.

The 3000m race with the 1500m world record holder will be one of the great highlights of the IAAF Diamond League final event on 3 September.

In addition, pole vaulter Jennifer Suhr (USA), another world record holder (indoor), has been added to the meeting’s entry lists.

The world’s fastest middle- and long-distance runners will meet for a trial of strength in the 3000m.

The race will most likely feature the strongest field of all times, as the entry list includes world championship medal contenders for the 1500m, 5000m, 10000m, and the 3000m SC.

1500m world record holder Genzebe Dibaba (ETH) will clearly play a leading part in the illustrious line-up.

It will be her first IAAF Diamond League appearance after her sensational run in Monaco (3:50.07).

In Zurich, the Ethiopian, who won her last eight races, will also be able to secure this year’s Diamond Trophy.

Her fellow countrywoman and current leader in the 5000m Almaz Ayana (ETH), 2011 double world champion Vivian Jepkemoi Cheruiyot (KEN), 2013 world championship silver medallist Mercy Cherono (KEN), and former 1500m world champion and Weltklasse Zürich 2014 winner Jennifer Simpson (USA) will all challenge Dibaba in Zurich.
