She started the 2011 season with a win at the Ethiopian 15K Championships, beating Atsede Habtamu at the line. She ran at the Ras Al Khaimah Half Marathon a few days later and was the runner-up, albeit some minutes behind a world record-breaking Mary Keitany. She came close to winning the World’s Best 10K race in Puerto Rico two weeks later, but was edged into second by Sentayehu Ejigu. She topped the podium at the World 10K Bangalore, pipping Merima Mohammed at the line. She ran the marathon at the 2011 World Championships in Athletics in Daegu, South Korea.
