Genzebe vs Obiri
ROME (ITA): The Rome Olympic Stadium track has produced great performances in the 5000 metres in the past. This year marks both the 60th anniversary of the world record set by Vladimir Kuts and the 30th anniversary of the first sub-13-minute time clocked by Said Aouita. He broke the world record in the Golden Gala edition, which took place shortly before the 1987 World Championships in Rome. One year ago another world record was under threat in women 5000 m by Almaz Ayana. This year Genzebe Dibaba against Hellen Obiri could be the clash to bring back the 5000 m excitement.
