Overview by IAAF   sevilla1 
Led by Hissou, natives of Morocco claimed three of the top four places in a race in which the first non African-born finisher, Kennedy, filled ninth place nearly half a lap behind the winner. Kennedy led at 1000m in a steady 2:38.16 but on the fourth lap Hissou tested the opposition with a 59.91 before conceding the lead to Limo. Hissou tried another burst leading up to 3000m (7:52.54), opening up 6m over Limo and Lahlafi with defending champion Komen next. He eased again and Komen took over for a lap before Hissou regained the lead. With 600m to go the race was between Hissou, Lahlafi and Mourhit (a Moroccan running for Belgium contesting his first major track final), with Limo and Komen detached. At the bell (12:01.94) it was Lahlafi ahead, and 200m out (12:30.39) it was Mourhit, but Hissou sprinted to victory. The fastest finisher was Limo, who moved from fourth to second in the late stages with a 26.9 final 200m. The first four broke 13 minutes and the championship record of 13:02.75.
 These are the official results of the Men's 5000 metres event at the 1999 IAAF World Championships in Seville, Spain. There were a total number of 37 participating athletes, with two qualifying heats and the final held on Saturday 28 August 1999 at 21:30h.
