  • Molly Huddle Finishes in 12th Place in 5,000 Meters at World Championships

The 27-year-old produced a devastating burst down the back straight to leave defending champion Almaz Ayana trailing and went on to win in a time of 14min 34.86sec.

Ayana led with Obiri on her tail into the final lap until the Kenyan, silver medalist in Rio de Janeiro a year ago, suddenly burst past with 300 meters left and stormed home to win in 14:34.86, more than five seconds clear of her rival.

Sifan Hassan of the Netherlands prevented an East African clean sweep by taking the bronze.

"I was telling myself to go".

Caster Semenya wins 800m gold
Burundi's Francine Niyonsaba , the Olympic silver medallist, finished second in 1:55.92, with American Ajee Wilson taking bronze (1:56.65).


Quote of the day: "It's really sad that I have to walk away", said Usain Bolt, whose anti-climatic major championships swansong included bronze in the 100m and a dramatic cramp in the anchor leg of the 4x100m relay. These lap times represented world record pace for the distance but Obiri was more than content - and confident enough - to sit in her slipstream while the field splintered behind the leaders. She has been plagued by injury this season and the 10,000 race on Aug.5 was her first of the season.

Obiri did not run the 10,000 metres last week and her decision to concentrate on the shorter distance paid off.

The race took to a slow start with Ayana dictating the pace through 400m and 800m in 1:21.77 and 2:40.74 respectively before another Ethiopian Senbere Teferi took the pack through 1,000m in 3:18.00 with Obiri and Ayana in pursuit. "I am better at leading it to get the win rather than challenging in a final sprint". "Compared to Rio this is a bigger achievement".
