Kenya: Hellen Obiri Wins 5000m Gold for Kenya

Best Australian performance: Dani Stevens smashed the Australian record to finish second behind Croatian Sandra Perkovic in the women's discus final.

Obiri claimed the opening gold medal of the night after a blistering acceleration midway through the final lap of the 5,000m.

But she would have wanted to go home with a pair of shiny gold medals. It was hard to push Hellen (Obiri) through to the finish line.

Ayana said what she had done in London was even better than her winning the 10,000m in Rio. These lap times represented world record pace for the distance but Obiri was more than content - and confident enough - to sit in her slipstream while the field splintered behind the leaders.

With the race into the final lap, Obiri made the kick for home which proved to be vital.

Vance Worley was in for the first four innings and gave up eight hits for Miami including the Rockies' three runs. Marlins RF Giancarlo Stanton leads the majors with 19 go-ahead homers, which is also a franchise record.

Kenya's Hellen Obiri claimed consolation for her Olympic silver past year winning the women's 5,000 metres world title on Sunday. "I am mentally strong so I knew I was capable".

Semenya, who continues to generate attention for her hyperandrogenism, a condition giving her naturally higher levels of testosterone, paced her effort superbly to achieve a negative split despite a rapid opening pace.

Ayana, who had won the 10,000m gold in what was her first race of the season, took silver for Ethiopia in 14:40.35 with the Netherlands Sifan Hassan finishing third in 14:42.73.

"It was just such a good race and I'm so pleased to be a world champion", Manangoi said.

Manangoi triumphed in 3:33.61 in the 1500m final to edge team-mate Timothy Cheruiyot by 0.38 seconds and improve on his medal silver two years ago in Beijing.

The American women sprinted to a dominant win over the pack, beating hosts Great Britain by six seconds, but the men couldn't defend their title as Fred Kerley lost the lead in the final straight. "It was hard to push Hellen through to the finish line", said Ayana. Poland came third in 3:25.41 to take bronze. "I won gold and bronze in Rio and now gold and silver, so this is a step up", she said.

In a cruel twist of fate, Anneisha McLaughlin-Whilby suffered an injury for the Jamaicans, who lost out on another relay medal.

It marked Felix's 11th world title and 17th medal following 400m bronze earlier in the Championships and 4x100m gold yesterday.

The 27-year-old had the top three throws of 2017 going into the competition, and led from the first attempt in the final to secure her country's first gold of the championships.
