Almaz AyanaThe first Olympic final that took place on the blue track of Rio was the women’s 10.000m.

37 athletes in competition: among them the season leader Almaz Ayana and the reigning Olympic champion Tirunesh Dibaba. As expected, a first group, led by AyanaDibaba and Alice Nawowuna, left the others behind dominating the 25 races.

Great rhythm for Almaz Ayana who, at the half race, heads towards a possible World Record cleaning in 14’46 along with Nawowuna.

In progressive development, Ayana passes the last 400m in 28’07  and finishes the race in 29’17″45 breaking the World Record.

29’31″78 was the previous record set by the Chinese athlete Junxia Wang during the Olympic Games in Beijing 1993.
