LONDON – Ethiopia’s double Olympic champion Tirunesh Dibaba will race in the women’s 5,000meters at this weekend’s Aviva London Grand Prix track and field meeting at Crystal Palace.

Dibaba, the Olympic 5,000m and 10,000m champion at the Beijing Olympic Games last summer, will be using the meeting as her final preparation before the World Championships in Berlin next month.

"I ran very well the last time I was in London and I enjoy running here very much," said Dibaba, who finished second to Kenya’s Linet Masai in New York in May.

"The London Grand Prix is important for me as a final test before the world championships. I hope to give everyone a preview of Berlin.

"This will only be my second race this season and I want to do my best to run a fast time before the world championships," she added.
