Ethiopia’s Almaz Ayana has won Africa’s first gold medal at the Rio Olympics in the women’s 10,000m.

In an incredible race she also broke the world record – her time of 29 minutes 17.45 seconds beat the previous mark (29:31.78) by China’s Wang Junxia in 1993.

Kenya’s Vivian Cheruiyot took silver and Ethiopia’s Tirunesh Dibaba took bronze after winning the last two OIympic golds over 10,000.
