Michelle Finn, Leevale AC, ran 6:16.67, for 7th place, breaking Sara Treacy's 6:27.38 record. Gesa Krause, produced a dynamic final lap, to win in 5:52.8, breaking the World Record of 6:02.16.  Behind her, in the early stages, there was mayhem, when Chepkurui, in 3rd place, had a spectacular mishap, (approx. 1:48 into the video) missing her footing and running smack into a hurdle barrier. After, literally, climbing over the hurdle and then falling to the track, clutching her abdomen.  Michelle then had to do 'some fancy footwork', to avoid the stricken Chepkurui.
