Overview by IAAF   2000_olympic_stadium.jpg 
For almost 20 of the 25 laps of the final, Paula Radcliffe led. She was ahead at every kilometre point except two – 8Km and 10Km, and yet came away without a medal. Radcliffe passed halfway in 15:05.70, with only her fifth kilometre slower than 3:02. At this point five were in the pack, and Loroupe was dropped only in the last kilometre. From 7800m on the lead frequently changed hands, the athletes ensuring that no-one made a break. Finally Tulu took over shortly after the bell, cruising smoothly away from Wami to regain the title she won eight years earlier by a good 30m. Her final lap was covered in a sensational 60.26. Wami just held off the ’96 champion Ribeiro for the silver medal. The top three all ran lifetime bests filling places 4-6 on the all-time list, while Radcliffe just beat her own personal best with her brave effort.
       
Summary by Sports-reference.com      
Britain's Paula Radcliffe had finished second at the 1999 World Championships, trailing Gete Wami of Ethiopia. In that race Radcliffe had set a fast pace, trying to run the kick out of her rivals but was still outkicked. Her strategy for Sydney was more of same – she set an even faster pace, leading thru most of the first 20 laps. This strung out the field and only five runners remained in medal contention at that point. The pack was Radcliffe, Wami, 1996 champion Fernanda Ribeiro, 1992 champion Derartu Tulu, and Kenya's Tegla Loroupe, bronze medalist at the 1999 Worlds. For the last five laps, the lead changed hands frequently. At the bell, Tulu took off and won by five seconds. Radcliffe had been run out and could not get a medal, with Wami outsprinting Ribeiro for the silver.
