|World Athletics Final|
September 9, 2006
1-Alesia Turava, BLR 9:27.08; 2-Jeruto Kiptum, KEN 9:28.60; 3-Salome Chepchumba, KEN 9:29.58; 4-Lyubov Ivanova, RUS 9:35.96; 5-Gladys Jerotich Kipkemoi, KEN 9:37.57; 6-Cristina Casandra, ROM 9:40.47; 7-Wioletta Janowska. POL 9:45.01; 8-Victoria Mitchell, AUS 9:47.63; 9-Roisin McGettigan, IRL 9:52.85; 10-Carrie Messner, USA 10:04.72.
Janowska has the world best-ever time of 6:03.38 for 2000m steeple (15 July 2006 at Gdansk) and is the 2006 world leader for 3000m steeple with 9:17.15 on July 3 at Athens. But she and some other major contenders here allowed a cautious pace to keep fast finishers in the hunt for big cash prizes. Chepchumba led the WAF field for 1600 meters, then Kiptum moved up, but Turava was in charge through the final lap.
Zenaide Vieira of Brazil, who qualified via three World Athletic Tour races, did not start here. Turava, who had only one WAT scoring meet all season, was an IAAF "wild card" addition to the start list. Three of the 10 runners were Kenyans and each finished in the top five.
