Question mark over age of Ethiopian athlete

Ethiopian Adanech Anbesa won the womens 1500m title at the recent IAAF World U20 Championships in Bydgozcz, Poland. Her athlete profile gives her date of birth as being the 23rd of Jan 1998 which makes her 18 years old.

Someone questioned if this was her real age?

I would be inclined to believe what she says but if she is ever proved otherwise she should be barred from athletics for live.

To be honest, i think she looks 40.
