Hassan's great comeback has also been noticed abroad.

Dutch star Sifan Hassan (who is attempting to win gold in the 1,500, 5K and 10K) falls just before the bell in the first round of the women's 1,500m.BUT…she gets back up and wins her heat in 4:05.17.WHAT ?!

The moment when we thought: cross it and on to the other two distances.

Nothing could be further from the truth: Hassan is unstoppable and finishes first in her series.

    Finish!

    Wow, what a show of power!

    She doesn't do it the way she hoped, but Hassan still runs for the fastest time.

    Hassan can prepare for the semi-finals on the 1,500 meters (Wednesday), but first of all the final of the 5,000 meters later today.

    Another 100 meters -

    Hassan quickly reconnects, can she still join the best six?

    Another 300 meters -

    Hassan gets up very quickly and starts the chase.

    This will cost energy, but can it limit the damage?

    Another 400 meters -

    Fall Sifan Hassan!

    The Dutch can no longer avoid the falling Edinah Jebitok and also goes to the ground.

    Another 700 meters -

    Hassan continues to follow relaxed in the tail of the group.

    Another 1,100 meters -

    Sifan Hassan starts the way we often see her.

    She is in the back of the group together with the Uruguayan Maria Pia Fernandez.

    Start!

    The fifteen athletes including Sifan Hassan are on their way.

    Hassan is by far the strongest of the field based on the world ranking.

    She is the number one in the world.

    LemLem Hailu from Ethiopia is then the fourteenth best in this ranking.

    Hassan will soon run in the second series of the 1,500 meters.

    She will undoubtedly want to save some energy, because later today (2.40 pm Dutch time) she will take action during the final of the 5,000 meters.

    Her goal for now is simple: to finish in the top six women of her series.
