Genzebe Dibaba of Ethiopia pulled away halfway through the 1,500-meter final and never let anyone close again as she added the world title to her world record.

After a slow start, Dibaba kicked with two laps to go and finished in 4 minutes, 8.09 seconds, .87 seconds ahead Faith Kipyegon of Kenya. Sifan Hassan of the Netherlands earned bronze, 1.25 behind.

Dibaba has been the dominating force in women’s track this season, setting a world record in Monaco during the run-up to the world championships. She will be seeking to complete a 1,500-5,000 double next weekend.
