Tokyo 2020: Sifan Hassan overcomes dramatic fall to keep Olympic treble alive

1 min read


The semi-finals take place on Wednesday with Muir in the same race as Hassan while the final is scheduled for Friday.

Hassan can win her first medal of the Games later today when she runs in the 5,000m final.

Ethiopia’s Senbere Teferi is the favourite having run a season’s best time of 14:15:24 – 20 seconds quicker than Hassan’s fastest time of the year.

Explaining her decision to compete for three gold medals at Tokyo 2020, Hassan said: “For me it is crucial to follow my heart.

“Doing that is far more important than gold medals. That keeps me motivated and it keeps me enjoying this beautiful sport.”
