  1. I am so glad Vivian Cheruiyot won this gold medal. For years she was overshadowed by Meseret Defar and Tirunesh Dibaba at the Olympics. Then in the 10,000m race when she finally beat Dibaba, Ayana took the gold over her instead. I don't think her performance has been given the credit it deserves. The fact it took so long to upload as well. She ran less than a second outside the previous 10,000m World Record a week before this performance and then went on to win this race with an Olympic Record. Bearing in mind Almaz Ayana faded in the latter stages of the 5000m because of fatigue caused by the 10,000m, Cheruiyot produced two back to back 64/65 second laps at the end, despite also running an incredible time in the 10,000m. She was a top 3 performer in every major race she entered since 2007 bar the 2008 Olympic 5,000m final where she got 4th place. She is a double 5,000m World Champion and a double 10,000m World Champion. Seriously underrated as an athlete because of her Ethiopian counterparts. But again, I am glad she won this, she deserved it.
