    The Ethiopian won back-to-back gold medals in the 10,000m in Beijing and London and also claimed the 5000m title in 2008. She will look to defend her title over the longer distance this summer as she bids to become the first athlete to have won three gold medals over the 10,000m distance. Victory in Manchester this May will give the 30-year-old another treble as she won the Great Manchester Run in 2013 and 2014.

    Ethiopia's Tirunesh Dibaba will attempt to become the first athlete to win three gold medals over 10,000-meters, her agent tells LetsRun.com. “Tirunesh is training well,” agent Mark Wetmore wrote. “The plan right now is the 10000m [not the marathon, at the Olympics]. She should run 1-2 indoor races and then prepare for the 10000m early in the outdoor season.”

    Dibaba, 30, is expected to return to competition after giving birth to a baby boy in Atlanta, Ga. in March. Her comeback will begin with select indoor races before running the 10,000-meters during the outdoor season. In her 11 races at the 10,000-meter distance, Dibaba has never lost.
