Tokyo: Sifan Hassan of the Netherlands wins women’s Olympics 5000m gold.

In Tokyo, Hassan is trying to do something extraordinary and uniquely painful: win the 1,500, the 5,000 and the 10,000 meters.

The 5,000 was her first chance for a medal, and she carefully maneuvered through the field before seizing control with about 200 meters to go, sprinting to the win in 14 minutes 36.79 seconds.
