Incheon: The UAE's Alia Saeed Mohammed ran a personal best to win the Asian Games women's 10,000 metres on Saturday and claim the first of an expected slew of medals for African-born athletes running for wealthy Gulf states. (Medal Tally)
Mohammed, orginally from Ethiopia, led a breakaway trio with five laps to go at Incheon's Asiad Main Stadium, comfortably holding off China's Ding Changgin and Ayumi Hagiwara of Japan to claim her adopted country's first gold of the Games.
The 20-year-old's winning time of 31 minutes, 51.86 seconds was the fastest of her career and she will go into Thursday's 5,000 metres full of confidence. (Toffee Alert for South Korea in Japan Blockbuster)
