The classic arena has a special place in the history of international distance running and has been the scene of numerous world records. Dibaba has often competed in Stockholm and provided the highlight of many a meeting in Stockholm.
– Stockholm is my second home and I’m looking forward to Stockholm BAUHAUS Athletics and the chance to run a fast 5000m, she said.
Genzebe Dibaba currently holds three indoor world records – 1500m, 3000m and 5000m – the latter two set at Stockholm’s XL Galan in 2014 and 2015. Will she add an outdoor record to her Swedish collection this summer?
