Doha 2019 pre­dic­tion

Athletics Weekly - - Statistics -

Based on the last two global cham­pi­onships, it is hard to look any­where else than Al­maz Ayana, es­pe­cially as the other Rio medal­lists Vi­vian Cheruiyot and Tirunesh Dibaba are now fo­cused on the marathon.

Her big­gest chal­lenge may come from a 5000m run­ner such as Si­fan Has­san should she choose this event which is fea­si­ble as it looks an eas­ier chance of a medal than the 1500m.

Win­ning time: 29:33.75 1 Al­maz Ayana (ETH); 2 Gelete Burka (ETH); 3 Sen­bere Te­feri (ETH); 4 Al­ice Na­wowuna (KEN); 5 Pauline Ka­mulu (KEN); 6 Stacy Ndiwa (KEN); 7 Lonah Chem­tai Salpeter (ISR); 8 Eil­ish McCol­gan (GBR)
