 Ethiopia's Genzebe Dibaba broke the world 2000m world record in Sabadell, Spain on Tuesday, Beruary 7.

Diababa, who holds 5 other world record ranging from 1500m to 5000m, clocked 5:23.71 to surpass the previous mark of 5:30.51 set by Gabriela Sabo by nearly 7 seconds. Interestingly, Dibaba also ran faster than world outdoor 2000m record of 5:25.36 set by Irish runner Sonia O´Salivan back in 1994. 

Last year in Sabadell, Dibaba´s coach Jama Abden was arrested after local police discovered in his room performance enhancing drugs. Abden declined he was supplying his athletes with performance enhancing drugs, while Dibaba said she has never used drugs.
