American athlete Abby D’Agostino gutted out four-plus laps after appearing to suffer a painful injury after plunging into into the back of New Zealand’s Nikki Hamblin.

D’Agostino, 24, had no time to avoid a stumbling Hamblin during her heat of the women’s 5000m.

Hamblin lay splayed on the blue track, and D’Agostino tried to help her up. Once that happened, D’Agostino crumbled back to the track twice, her leg buckling both times, and the Kiwi runner stayed with her for some time before rejoining the race.

After remarkably finishing the race, D’Agostino was helped off the track in a wheelchair.

D’Agostino would’ve been in trouble for making contact with a runner either way should she have made a miraculous comeback into contention.

Shelby Houlihan and Kim Conley of Team USA ran the other heat, with Houlihan qualifying for the final with a fourth-place run. Conley finished 12th.

Singapore will hold the world aquatics championships in 2025, replacing the originally awarded host of Kazan, Russia, and bringing the event to Southeast Asia for the first time.

It will mark an unprecedented fourth consecutive year to have a world aquatics championships after Budapest (2022), Fukuoka, Japan (2023) and Doha in February 2024, five months before the Paris Olympics.

The World Aquatics Championships were a biennial event before the COVID-19 pandemic altered the global sports calendar.

Aquatics worlds include swimming, diving, water polo, artistic swimming and the non-Olympic discipline of high diving. They are usually contested in June and July, though the Singapore dates are to be determined.

Kazan was originally named 2025 Worlds host in 2019, but the nation has been stripped of hosting international competitions since it invaded Ukraine. Budapest was also named 2027 Worlds host back in 2019.
