Overview by IAAF  
As usual, the Kenyans were favoured to win, but Jager had impressed mightily a month earlier when running 8:00.45 in Paris, despite falling at the final barrier. The Kenyans had four entries in Beijing because Kemboi was granted a wild card as defending champion. The early pace in the final was set by Kipruto. Jager stayed with the Kenyans until Kemboi made a sprinter’s break for home with 250m remaining. Conseslus Kipruto followed with his own sprint, but the American had no answer. Kemboi’s win was sealed with his seamless clearance of the final barrier, while C. Kipruto stuttered. Another Kipruto (Brimin) took the bronze, with Birech completing a Kenyan sweep of the first four. Then it was Huling who emerged as the best American rather than Jager. Kemboi’s unique medal collection from seven successive World Championships: three silvers, then four golds.
