Overview by IAAF   ESTADIO ULLEVI 
World junior 3000m champion Szabo made a bold start in the final with a 63.28 first lap which put her into a lead of 15m. The pace settled down after that with the Romanian leading at 1000m in 2:51.95 and 2000m in 5:53.48. Radcliffe then took over, running 3:04.7 for the third kilometre to reach 3000m in 8:58.19. Second at this point was the big favourite, O’Sullivan. The British runner stayed ahead for two more laps before Ribeiro – running her fourth race in seven days – took over. The Portuguese surged and by the bell had dropped all but O’Sullivan and Ouaziz. Szabo and Radcliffe were contesting fourth place. Just before the final bend, O’Sullivan made her move. Ribeiro held the Irishwoman for some of the turn but was no match for O’Sullivan’s 28.8 final 200m. “After the first three laps, it was quite clear that the kick would be decisive,” said O’Sullivan. “I never look back, and I didn’t tonight.”
 These are the official results of the Women's 5,000 metres event at the 1995 World Championships in Gothenburg, Sweden. It was the first time at the World Championships that women competed over the 5000 metres distance instead of 3000 metres. There were a total number of 51 participating athletes, with three qualifying heats and the final held on Saturday 1995-08-12.
