Defar thinks about 10km

10.07.2009 World

Reigning 5000 m world champion Meseret Defar is considering to run the 10 000 m at British Trials this weekend in Birmingham.

Ethiopia is selecting their teams in long distances based on times. Meselech Melkamu leads the currently best trio with 29:53.80 ahead of Ayalew Yimer (30:11.87) and Aberu Kebede (30:48.26).

Defar is only next in order (31:07.34) so would need a faster time in case she wants to double  in Berlin at World Championships. After her Oslo win she was quoted as saying that in next days she will decide whether to try for it. Tirunesh Dibaba as title defender has the wild-card.
