The fastest family in the world for an award

The Dibaba sisters from Ethiopia are the first siblings in recorded history to hold multiple world records, making them the fastest family in the world. Ejegayehu, Tirunesh, Genzebe, and Anna are four sisters who are all world champions in the sport of track racing. The most accomplished sister, Tirunesh, has won three gold Olympic medals. She achieved Olympic history in Beijing in 2008 when she became the first woman to win gold in the 5,000- and 10,000-meter races. She won gold at the London Olympics in 2012, making history as the first woman to win the competition twice. Genzebe took home a silver medal at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, and Anna has been competing for Ethiopia since 2017. Their older sister, Ejegayehu, won a silver medal at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens. They have won 15 world championships, 4 Olympic gold medals, 2 silver medals, 3 bronze medals, and 4 silver medals. Derartu Tulu, a cousin of theirs, became the first Black African woman to win an Olympic gold medal in 1992. As a result, the Dibaba family is now Olympic royalty and Ethiopia’s source of joy and pride. The sisters’ parents, who made a living as farmers, gave birth to them and raised them near to Addis Abeba. Their mother, Gutu, is quoted by Vogue as saying that the women’s success is due to a nurturing atmosphere.
