South Africa’s Salome Cooper made a late-race move to surge into the top 10, pushing especially hard on her final lap, and finishing in seventh place. After running in the top 10 pretty much all race, Noora Honkala and Kajsa Berg took eighth and ninth. The Netherlands Leonie Ton rounded out the women’s top 10 by running outside of the top 10 early, moving up inside the top five mid-race, and finally fading some at the end.
