Faith Kipyegon of Kenya has defended her Olympic title in the women’s 1,500 metres.
27-year-old Kipyegon ran the race in an Olympic record time of 3:53.11.
She becomes only the third athlete to retain an Olympic 1500m title.
Kipyegon once again proved herself as the best in the world at her chosen distance.
After winning the 1,500 metres gold at the 2016 Olympics, she gave birth to her first child in 2018.
She returned to win the silver medal at the 2019 world championships and ran the fourth-fastest time in the history of the event at a meet in July: 3:51.07.
