Written by FDM

After Doha, Shanghai hosted the second stage of the IAAF Diamond League. The Moroccan athlete Rababe Arafi has again shone, winning this Saturday in the women’s 1,500 meters.

She signed the best performance of the year, with a time of 4 minutes and 1 sec and 15 /100th, reports Eurosport, ahead of Ethiopian Gudaf Tsegay (4: 01.25) and Ugandan Winnie Nanyondo (4: 01.39).

In August 2018, the Moroccan woman stood out by signing the third best female performance in the history of Morocco’s participation in the Intercontinental Athletics Cup. She also won two gold medals at the last Mediterranean Games held in June in Tarragona, Spain.

The Diamond League competition still has 9 events, including one scheduled in Rabat. The list of finalists will be based on the ranking of these first 12 events.
