Oromo Olympian Tirunesh Dibaba Wins 2017 Bank of America Chicago Marathon

Three-time Olympic gold medalist Tirunesh Dibaba has won the women’s field of the 2017 Bank of America Chicago Marathon.

Dibaba beat out defending champion Florence Kiplagat, keeping her from winning her third consecutive Chicago Marathon.

“This is my third marathon and I’m very happy to have won here,” Dibaba said after her win. “I worked very hard for this.”

Dibaba recorded her fastest marathon earlier this year in London, coming across the finish line at two hours, 17 minutes 56 seconds. She is currently the third fastest woman running distances longer than 42 kilometers.

Dibaba picked up three gold medals and three bronze medals from the last four Summer Olympic Games.
