The Women's 3,000 metres Steeplechase event at the 2009 World Championships in Athletics was held at the Olympic Stadium on August 15 and August 17. The Russian steeplechase team entered for the event was particularly strong, featuring world record holder and Olympic champion Gulnara Galkina, defending world champion Yekaterina Volkova, and third fastest of the year Yuliya Zarudneva. Other possible medallists included Marta Domínguez, who had the world-leading time prior to the competition, American record holder Jenny Barringer, and world junior record holder Ruth Bisibori.[1]

On the first day of competition, Galkina won heat one, with Germany's Antje Möldner finishing not far behind with a national record-breaking run. African athletes Zemzem Ahmed and Gladys Kipkemoi shared the winning time in the second heat, a race which saw the defending champion Volkova eliminated from the competition.[2]

In the final, the favourite Galkina led upon the final lap, when Domínguez and Zarudneva sped ahead of the field. Domínguez kicked in the final straight to take her first World Championship gold medal in 9:07.32. This was a Spanish record and the fourth fastest of all time, in what was only her ninth race in the steeplechase. Zarudneva held on for the silver medal and Milcah Chemos Cheywa, a Kenyan newcomer, took the bronze, both athletes with a personal best. The former champion Galkina had faded into fourth place, and out of the medals. A number of athletes in the rest of the field recorded personal bests, with highlights including Habiba Ghribi and Antje Möldner running national records, and Jennifer Barringer setting a new North American record.[3]
