The 5 time World Champion, Dibaba, clocked 15.21 at the 5km mark, meaning that she was off the pace by 10 seconds, but managed to improve the second part of the race in 15:09. Dibaba crossed the finish line in 30:30min winning the race and setting the 4th fastest time over the 10km road race in history.
