Given Dibaba's PB over the 3200m distance is only a few seconds slower than the race will be won in tomorrow evening, 9.12.23, DizzyRunner suggests we all pool our money together and get her to race the boys off scratch. The 9minutes of entertainment would be well worth it, at least relative to the 12seconds Asafa will give us.

Sadly, according to the IAAF article below, the Wangaratta organisers were outbid by the Boston Grand Prix.

Tirunesh Dibaba returns to Boston to race over Two Miles


Ethiopia's three-time Olympic Champion Tirunesh Dibaba will race over Two Miles at the 2013 New Balance Indoor Grand Prix in Boston on February 2, an IAAF Indoor Permit meeting, organisers announced on Friday (18).

“I’m looking forward to launching my 2013 season in one of my favourite cities,” said Dibaba, one of the most-decorated female athletes in the history of the sport. The World indoor best for Two Miles is held by Dibaba’s compatriot and rival Meseret Defar, who ran 9:06.26 in 2009.

Now 27, Dibaba has become a familiar sight at the Boston meeting over the years, the Ethiopian superstar began her comeback from long-term injury here last year a campaign that culminated in her winning two Olympic medals in London – gold at 10000m and then bronze at 5000m – to add to the two victories she achieved at those distances in Beijing four years earlier.

The versatile distance star has also earned a total of eight senior World titles on the track and at cross country. She currently owns the outdoor 5000m World record.
