London 2012: African Olympians to watch-Tirunesh Dibaba


Defending Olympic champion at both 5,000m and 10,000m, Tirunesh Dibaba is regarded by many as the fastest finisher in the history of women's distance running.
Since the Beijing Olympics, she has struggled with injuries - leading to lengthy lay-offs from running.
But her form suggests she may be on the way back to her best.
One of the most-anticipated events of London 2012 is her clash with fellow Ethiopian Meseret Defar and the formidable Kenyan Vivian Cheruiyot.
