Kenya's Hellen Obiri eyes Diamond League title - Sports Leo

Kenya’s world champion Hellen Obiri is targeting a third consecutive Diamond League 5000m title the AG Memorial van Damme in Brussels, Belgium, on Thursday.

The event on Thursday and Friday is a fitting end to four months of high-octane action, 12 enthralling qualifying meetings in the 2019 IAAF Diamond League. The first leg of the Diamond League finals produced 16 newly-crowned champions in Zurich last week.

Obiri will be going up against two world record-holders. European champion Ethiopian-born Sifan Hassan, who broke the world mile record earlier this year, and Kenya’s Beatrice Chepkoech, the world record-holder in the steeplechase, are both in the field.

Agnes Tirop, who beat Obiri over 5000m in Stockholm and over 10,000m at the Kenyan Championships, is also a big contender.

African 3000m record-holder Letesenbet Gidey finished ahead of Obiri in Stanford, so may once again be a threat in Brussels.
