Overview by IAAF  1996_olympic_stadium.jpg
After a cautious first heat won by Wami in 32:20.92, Tulu took the other race with the fastest heat time ever of 31:35.90. Catherina McKiernan (IRL) led for the first three kilometres of the final, reached in 9:17.21. World Champion Ribeiro had taken over by 5000m, leading a pack of 10 through in 15:35.85, almost precisely the same time as in the 1992 final. Barsosio and Julia Vaquero (ESP) were the leaders at the next three kilometre points, but Ribeiro was back in front at 9000m with only Wang and the two Ethiopians in tow. With 500m to go Wang, the ’93 World Champion and world record holder, made her move, with only Ribeiro able to stay in touch. As the two entered the homestraight, Ribeiro saw a gap on the inside, through which she darted, and won by 6m. Ribeiro won plaudits for her fighting spirit and beating the seemingly invincible Wang, while the Chinese finished as the most successful distance runner – male or female – in Atlanta.
Summary by Sports-reference.com
Portugal's Fernanda Ribeiro had won the 1994 European Championship and the 1995 World Championship in this event. The world record holder was China's Wang Junxia, who had won the 5K earlier in the Games, and in 1993, had run 29:31.78 at the Chinese National Games. The mark destroyed the world record but raised many eyebrows concerning its legality and her chemical profile. However, she never tested positive in any doping control and was in Atlanta. The defending champion, Derartu Tulu, was also back. In the final, Ribeiro led at the halfway point, but a pack of 10 was together at that point. With two laps left, the medals were to be decided from among Ribeiro, Wang, Tulu, and Ethiopia's Gete Wami. Wang took the lead with 600 metres remaining, and held it until the homestretch, as Wami and Tulu could not keep with them. Ribeiro appeared in trouble with 80 metres left when she darted by Wang on the inside and pulled away to win by one second.
