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.
