2019 Women’s 5000 World Rankings

World champ Hellen Obiri became the first ever to score 3 straight No. 1s here. (GLADYS CHAI/ASVOM AGENCY)

NOBODY HAD A BLEMISH-FREE season and it came down to choosing either world champ Hellen Obiri or DL Trophy winner Sifan Hassan. Hassan beat Obiri convincingly in the Brussels race, but that was the only win she had all season. Obiri, on the other hand had a DL win (one in which she convincingly beat Hassan) to go with her gold medal and thus earned a narrow victory, her record third No. 1 in a row. Hassan skipped the WC 5000 in favor of her historic 1500/10,000 double…

THE WC SILVER/BRONZE MEDALISTS, Margaret Kipkemboi and Konstanze Klosterhalfen, reverse places here, the German getting the No. 3 spot based on a 2-place edge on the Kenyan in the DL Final… DL Final runner-up Letesenbet Gidey is another who was forced into a 5/10 choice in Doha by the timetable and went with the longer event.
