• A big SURPRISE winner in the women's 5000m!

    24 July at 04:52 from atlas

    No-one would have expected young Kalkidan Fentie of Ethiopia to triumph in an event which has been dominated by her countrywomen for many years, however, on the day she did. Boasting an unremarkable personal best of only 16:26.11, she was definitely only an outside chance of getting among the leaders, let alone the medals... and the gold must have seemed well beyond her reach.

    Nevertheless she demonstrated her unproven abilities with a couple of timely surges of pace at vital moments in this race, and came away with the title and a new best mark of 15:29.64: almost a one minute improvement - outstanding.
