    Don't forget Dibaba got out-kicked by Defar in Dibaba's last loss at this distance.

        It's one thing to outkick Dibaba, but Masai beat her the hard way, by running her into the ground. I never thought I'd see the day that someone did that to Miss Follow-the-Leader.

          I'm quite happy about this result. Masai has so much potential and unlike quite a lot of the 5000m-oriented Kenyan runners, Linet is prepared to have a go. She has the most beautiful stride as well.

            True, but a fit Dibaba is a 1/2 lap faster then the winning time today.

              As are Meseret Defar and Vivian Cheruyiot when at the top of their respective games. But still a seriously impressive run from Masai. Is she even 20 yet? She's a bit like Grace Jackson - it's an absolute joy to watch her run.

                She's 20 in December.

                  Thanks nevets!

                  According to the IAAF's athlete bios, not only did she conquer Dibaba, she knocked nearly 12 seconds off her PB as well! Her previous best was 14:47.14.

                    Masai is one of the most beautiful runners i have ever seen and has potential world record talent but she is not gonna beat a healthy Dibaba in Berlin.
