Back to full health, Dibaba showcased her recent fitness with a World Record performance in her 15-kilometer road race debut last month in the Netherlands. This was Dibaba’s fourth World Record. Dibaba’s first three world records have been at 5000m: the first two were set at the Reebok Boston Indoor Games (2005, 2007) and the third, which still stands, was set outdoors in Oslo in 2008..
Since the Reebok Boston Indoor Games began in 1996, more than 100 Olympic and World Championship medalists have competed in the event, which has also played host to six World Records and nine American Records. Sponsored by Reebok International Ltd., with its world headquarters in Canton, Mass., the event is owned and produced by Global Athletics & Marketing, Inc., an athlete-representation and events firm based in Boston.
