Great attitude from a humble champion

Watching her catch up that distance in 300mtrs was amazing.

She just breezed pass others and on the outside too.

Couldn't help think "Whos going to have that speed and stamina in the final to beat her?"

No one I guess.

Maybe.

Her stride and perseverance are awesome. She will go far in this world as an educational icon and teacher.

She made it look easy but she must have been very high on adrenaline to archive a super human feat like that!

Hassan had already qualified to run in the 5,000-meter final later Monday at the Olympic Stadium, although the energy she expended on that last-lap scramble in the 1,500 heats might catch up with her when she returns in the evening session to try for her first gold of the Games.

We'll see if it cost her at the 5,000m final later in the day

And she raced home in a mind boggling last lap to win gold.
