Biography

Birhane Dibaba httpsiytimgcomviRTPQwarEXj4hqdefaultjpg

At the 2014 Tokyo Marathon, Birhane Dibaba ran a personal best time of 2:22:30 hours for second place, behind Ethipion teammate Tirfi Tsegaye. At the 2015 Tokyo Marathon, Birhane ran a time of 2:23:15 hours for first place. During the post-race interviews of the 2015 Tokyo Marathon, she gave her responses via a Japanese-to-Ethiopian translator, and her mannerisms displayed her apparent shyness at interviews. As a result of this marathon win, she was selected for the Ethiopian women's marathon team along with three other 2015 women's marathon winners at the 2015 World Championships in Athletics.

She competed in the women's marathon at the 2017 World Championships in Athletics.
