Overview by IAAF   ESTADIO ULLEVI 
Kiptanui was in such tremendous form that he could afford to hold back on the final lap yet still win by 50m and clock one of the fastest times ever seen. The barefoot Kosgei had surprisingly beaten Kiptanui in their previous clash in Sweden at the Stockholm Grand Prix, but there was only one winner in Gothenburg. The defending champion led from start to finish, reeling off successively faster kilometres of 2:44.06, 2:41.70 and 2:39.36. 142 DOHA 2019  PAST RESULTS/WORLD CHAMPS MEN’S 3000mSC At the bell Kiptanui had eight metres on Birir, who was around 5m ahead of Kosgei and Al-Asmari, the only man able to stay with the pace of the Kenyans. With 300m remaining a Kenyan medal sweep looked likely. Then Birir fell heavily at one of the hurdles after being knocked by the inexperienced Kosgei, who had suddenly accelerated in pursuit of Kiptanui. This left Al-Asmari in third place. Birir – the Olympic Champion – quickly got up but lost any chance of catching the Saudi athlete when he fell again at the last water jump. He jogged in to place ninth. Kiptanui won from Kosgei with history’s third-fastest time. Al-Asmari won his country’s first medal. The winner stirred controversy when he admitted that he had been saving himself for the following week’s Zürich Grand Prix. There, he lowered his world record to an historic 7:59.18.
 A men's 3000 metres steeplechase event was held at the 1995 World Championships in Athletics in Gothenburg, Sweden. There were a total number of 36 participating athletes, with three qualifying heats, two semi-finals and the final held on Friday 11 August 1995.
