Agony & Ecstasy in the Women's 10,000: Molly Huddle Gives the Bronze Away to Emily Infeld as Vivian Cheruiyot Wins Gold Once Again

Huddle had the bronze until the final step, when she slowed down to throw up her arms, allowing Infeld to sneak by on the inside. Ahead of them, Cheruiyot won her fourth global title with an impressive 60-second last lap as she kicked away from Ethiopia's Gelete Burka to win a slow race in 31:41.31. Overall, it was a fantastic race for the Americans (Shalane Flanagan was the other), as they went 3-4-6.

2015 World Women’s 10,000 Preview: Can anyone stop Vivian Cheruiyot from returning to the winner's circle and winning a 4th track gold? Will Molly Huddle medal?

An American man has never medalled in the 10,000 at Worlds but Molly Huddle has a real shot at joining Kara Goucher and Shalane Flanagan as a global medallist. Vivian Cheruiyot is back from matenrity leave and seems like a near -lock for gold given Tirunesh Dibaba's absence.
