Asiad: Sreedharan gets silver in 5000m

November 26, 2010 15:34 IST

Preeja Sreedharan and Kavita Raut clocked their personal bests to clinch the silver and bronze respectively in the women's 5000m final of the Asian Games in Guangzhou on Friday.

Sreedharan, who earlier clinched the 10,000m gold, returned a timing of 15:15.89.

Raut, who bagged a silver in 10,000m, could not get past Sreedharan yet again but managed a personal best of 15:16.54 to win the bronze.

Bahrain's Mimi Belete Gebgregeiorges clinched the gold medal with a timing of 15:15.59, which was incidentally her personal best as well.
