Olympic champion Sifan Hassan will go in search of her first medal at this year’s world championships when she takes on a very competitive field at Hayward Field on Saturday, and although the Dutch star hasn’t raced much this season, her target remains well set on getting on the podium in the final.

Ethiopia’s Letesenbet Gidey, the 10,000 meters champion from last week, will aim to complete an endurance race double with compatriots Dawit Seyaum and Gudaf Tsegay –two of the top four runners in the world in the event this year, also starting in the final.
