Osaka: Day Five - Women's 5000 M Kicks Off

Dispite Tirunesh's exit, this is the strongest 5,000 team Ethiopia has put together. There has never been a men's team that was this strong. Look for all three (Meseret Defar, Tirunesh Dibaba and Gelete Burika) to easly qualify. The fun will be on Saturday when they run for medals.

1500 Meters First Round (Women): No Qualifiers
Mestawat Tadesse finished 12th in her heat and did not advance. Not a surprising finish. Our former Zenebech Tola Kotu now Bahrian's Maryam Yusuf Jamal finished second in her heat and advanced to the simi-finals.

5000 Meters Semi-Finals(Women):All There Qualify
As expected all theree women have qualified for the finlas. Saturday should be a lot of fun.
