The Sensational Asbel Kiprop Reigns Supreme and Wins Fourth Global Title

The race really broke apart with 300 to go as Makhloufi made the same move he did in the Olympic final three years ago, opening up a lead of two or three meters with entering the final turn. The competition had improved since that night in London, however, and by 100 to go, Iguider was only a stride behind Makhloufi with Kiplagat a stride and a half behind Iguider. Kiprop was there too, having gone out into lane three on the backstretch to move from 10th to fourth with 150 to go. With room to run in the outside of lane two, Kiprop hit top gear and that was that. He took the lead with 50 to go and despite the best efforts of Makhloufi, Iguider and Kiplagat, none could claw back so much as an inch until Kiprop launched into his celebration, winning with a 51-second last lap.
