ADDIS ABABA (ETH): Olympic and world gold medalist Meseret Defar will miss the 2014 season. The reason is a happy one. She is pregnant and expects the birth by the end of June. Defar plans to be back for the 2015 season.

(Editor's note: Meseret Defar has had excellent 2012 and 2013 seasons, putting her back on her pedestal. Defar has had a tremendous career so far, and we look forward to the next chapter.)
