2018 Women’s 5000 World Rankings

Hellen Obiri sewed up No. 1 with a win in the DL Final. (MARK SHEARMAN)

THE FIRST KENYAN ever to win 2 years in a row, Hellen Obiri was an easy choice. She lost once, at Pre, but more than avenged that, going a combined 7–0 against Nos. 2-3-4 (Sifan Hassan, Senbere Teferi & Agnes Tirop)… Euro champ Hassan was an easy No. 2, losing only to Obiri (twice)…

CONSPICUOUS IN HER absence was Ethiopia’s Almaz Ayana, twice a No. 1 and twice a No. 2 in the last 4 years. She picked up a knee problem and didn’t race all year… U.S. leader Shelby Houlihan didn’t race on the DL Circuit, but earned No. 8 based on an impressive outing at Heusden-Zolder.
