2021 Women’s 5000 World Rankings

Neither Hellen Obiri nor Gudaf Tsegay could hold off Sifan Hassan at the end of the Olympic final. (ANDREW McCLANAHAN/PHOTO RUN)

THE FIRST FINAL in Sifan Hassan’s unparalleled Olympic triple was the 5000, which she won convincingly. When she followed up with a win at the Pre Classic, No. 1 was hers for the first time, after runner-up finishes in the previous two installments and a No. 3 in ’17…

THE FIRST CHUNK OF THE YEAR didn’t go well for former 800 star Francine Niyonsaba, bounced from the 2-lapper because of DSD regulations and then DQed in the Olympic heats for a lane violation. But after the Games she won both the Brussels and Zürich honors, along the way collecting enough scalps to take No. 2 in an event she had never run before May…

THE OLYMPIC ORDER was then very much the sequence of the day, with placers 2-6 following in order.
