Olympic 5000m bronze medallist Gudaf Tsegay will be looking to improve her time at the Villa de Madrid Indoor Meeting which is a World Athletics Indoor Tour Gold level meeting that will be held on Tuesday (2) in Madrid, Spain.
Tsegay who set the World Indoor Record of 3:53.09 in Liévin last year has set her target at a better time than what she is holding now.
The 24-year-old won the mile in Liévin in 4:21.72 despite a fall in the first lap and set the second fastest time in history clocking 3:54.77 in Torun last week.
Tsegay will face off against four Olympic 1500m finalists, Freweyni Hailu also from Ethiopia, Oceanian Indoor record holder Jessica Hull and fellow Australian runner Linden Hall and Spanish champion Marta Perez.
Hailu finished fourth at the Olympic Games in Tokyo in a time of 3:57.60 which was the fastest 1500m final in history.
The Ethiopian moved up to third in the Ethiopian all-time list with 3:56.28 in Monaco and to fourth in the 800m with a time of 1:57.57 in Chorzow.
Hailu finished third this year in two 1500m races in Karlsruhe in a time of 4:02.66 and Torun in 4:02.50.
The other Ethiopians title contender is Hirut Meshesha who finished second in the 1500m in Karlsruhe in 4:02.14 and third in the mile in Liévin in 4:27.19 while Lemlem Hailu set her personal best in the 3000m when she clocked 8:29.28 in Madrid last year and finished second in 4:02.25 in the 1500m in Torun.
The hopes of Spain are carried by Perez, who finished ninth at the Tokyo Olympic games in 1500m race setting the Spanish second fastest time of 4:02.12 in history.
