From the gun, the first runner to the break line was Mexico's Gabriela Medina, but as the athletes sorted themselves, American Chanelle Price found her way to the front follow closely by Cuba's Rose Mary Almanza. On the final straight, Almanza sprinted by giving Cuba several metres at the handoff. Cuba's Arletis Thaureaux's personal best was almost 9 seconds slower than America's Maggie Vessey, so it was fairly easy for Vessey to move into position to mark Thaureaux in the first 200 metres out front. Kenya's Sheila Jepkosgei
sprinted the first 200 metres to make up the gap, following Vessey around Thaureaux and the rest of the field tightened up behind. At the beginning of her second lap, Vessey asserted the lead and opened up a sizable gap.
paid for her exuberance and began to fall back through the field while Simoya Campbell put Jamaica at the head of the chase pack. As Vessey continued to stretch the lead, Campbell was displaced by Poland's Katarzyna Broniatowska, chased by Canada's Rachel François. By the end of her leg, Vessey had a 30-meter gap on the field, Broniatowska handed off in second and flopped to the track, Jamaica's Natoya Goule dodging the body after getting the baton. Chesang's last 200 metres were agony, handing off 14 seconds behind the same Vessey she had challenged earlier, Kenya well out of the running. Taking the baton from Kelly Hetherington about even with Canada, Australia's Selma Kajan rolled into second place around the turn. Molly Beckwith-Ludlow maintained the American lead while the end of the first lap saw the Australian running shoulder to shoulder with Goule and Poland's Angelika Cichocka with Canada's Elizabeth Whelan just a step behind challenged by Cuba's Gilda Casanova. Goule eased ahead, with Cichocka the only one to go with her, while Kajan dropped back to battle Casanova and Whelan as a third pack. Ludlow handed off to Alysia Johnson Montaño some 40 metres ahead, while Cichocka sprinted past Goule on the final straight. Known as a front runner, Montaño ran a hard first lap and opened up a huge lead, the entire home straight. Poland's Sofia Ennaoui moved into a clear second place with a line up of Canada's Rachel Aubry, Australia's Brittany McGowan, Cuba's Sahily Diago and Jamaica's Samantha James lined up in that order to chase for the medals. It was McGowan who pushed the final back stretch into the wind and broke away from the group.
