Osaka 5k Predictions

IAAF Distance Preview

Predicting the 5k and 10k is always difficult for several reasons. First, we're not always sure exactly who is going to run what event until the last minute. Second, the lack of pacemakers in championship races often makes them quite different from the the races we've seen over the summer. And finally, the ability to peak at the right time plays a role as well. I'm calling these picks little but a crapshoot.


Gold - Eliud Kipchoge (Kenya).

Silver - Craig "Buster" Mottram (Australia).

Bronze - Sileshi Sihine (Ethiopia).


Gold - Meseret Defar (Ethiopia).

Silver - Tirunesh Dibaba (Ethiopia).

Bronze - Mariem Alaoui Selsouli (Morocco).
