Overview by IAAF   stadio olimpico rome 
Aouita kept his rivals guessing by provisionally entering the 800m, 1500m, 5000m and 10,000m, but he opted for the event in which he had become the Olympic Champion in 1984. He must have been slightly worried by the little-known Ngugi, who set a championship record to win his heat. The Kenyan led through 2000m (5:34.93), 3000m (8:16.19) and 4000m (10:58.60) before fading dramatically. Aouita, always wellplaced, uncorked a 52.92 final lap for victory. Domingos Castro – whose twin brother was 8th – took the silver medal.
These are the official results of the Men's 5,000 metres event at the 1987 IAAF World Championships in Rome, Italy. There were a total of 36 participating athletes, with two qualifying heats and the final held on Sunday September 6, 1987.
