Birmingham and Robinson’s 5000m Races

Brett Robinson took to the track first for his heat of the 5000m at the 2015 IAAF World Championships. After remaining strong and with the lead group throughout the first 4000m of the race, he was then unable to stay right with them once they took off with a kilometre to go. He finished in 10th place with a time of 13:49.62, but will struggle to make it through to the final.

Collis Birmingham was next to take the track in the second of three heats of the 5000m. After leading the front pack for a large component of the event, Collis was unable to hold on when the pace increased. He crossed the line with a final time of 13:34.58 in 15th position.

Neither Collis or Robinson will make it through to the final.
