Track Beauty of the Week: Habiba Ghribi
November 27, 2011Posted by on
Habiba Ghribi is this week’s track beauty!
The women’s 3,000m steeplechase is a relatively young event. It first made its appearance on a major international competition at the 2005 World Championships in Helsinki. Ghribi is a pioneer in women’s steeplechase, having shifted from cross-country running in 2005.
She has improved dramatically over the years. From her 2005 personal best of 9:51.49, the Tunisian shaved off almost 50 seconds in a span of four years, en route to a sixth place finish – and a Tunisian national record – at the 2009 World Championships in Berlin.
Two years later in Daegu, Ghribi won her first ever major championship medal, setting a new personal best of 9:11.97 – the ninth fastest performance in the young event’s history.
