This below video of Sifan Hassan will be played to future runners for years to come on how you should never give up.
There was high drama in the heats of the women’s 1500m, as Sifan Hassan got her legs tangled and went crashing to the ground. It put her basically in last place with just one lap to go.
She picked herself up, hit the boosters and proceeded to pass each runner one-by-one and got to the shoulders of the leaders at the top of the home straight.
She was able to ease off the pace, but still made a statement by taking first place in a time of 4:05.17.
