Genzebe Dibaba won the womenís 3,000 meters

Ethiopian young athlete Genzebe Dibaba won the womenís 3,000 meters at the 2014 IAAF World Indoor Championships in Sopot on Sunday.

Genzebe Dibaba time was 8:55.04 which was a little bit behind what she set Stockholm last month 8:16.60. It was also over 20 seconds behind the IAAF World Indoor Championship record Elly Van Hulst of the Netherlands set back in 1989. Even though she did not break the record, Genzebe said she was happy to win the gold medal.

"I moved up with about eight laps to go, but I couldnít shake them off, so I had to increase the pace with 800 to go. That was what we had discussed before the race with my coach. This year, Iíve added 3000m World Championships gold to three world records, and itís been a great year for me. My sister Tirunesh also wanted me to focus on the gold, and not the time. I know they will be very happy. I have done what they hoped and expected.Ē
