    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.
    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.

    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.

    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.

    Yep, another great kicker.

    Masai is very young and quite impressive. Lots of potential. Don't give Dibaba the Berlin gold yet . . .
    Masai is an amazing talent and may one day have the world record but in a championship race the kickers win.

    Zacktly, she's not in shape, wait till worlds, in shape she can not be beat, period. :x
