the lone distance final contested on the second day of the IAAF World
Junior Championships in Barcelona, Buze Diriba took home the women’s
5000m gold medal, running 15:32.94 to give Ethiopia their second gold
medal in as many days. Coming down the home stretch it was Diriba and
her training partner, Ruti Aga, battling for the top spot, with only
one-one hundredth of a second separating the pair at the tape.
