Janowska was leading after a cautious pace for five laps, then succumbed to Turava (who closed with a 2:57.43 final kilometer, and Petrova who secured second shortly before entering the final turn. The field's depth was evident by NR (national records) for seventh and eighth place runners.

Semi-Finals, 10 August:

A 31-athlete field was reduced to 12 in the final: first four placers (P) in each semi and just as many (4) advancing by time (T) which is a system often advantageous to only those in the second semi who know how fast to run for advancment. At this meet, a major victim was Ireland's Roisin McGettigan with a 9:32.04 NR on July 22 but not fast enough semi here.
