Australian Jack McLoughlin led from the 100 mark and never looked back, powering his way to a gold medal with a 14:47.09. McLoughlin was able to hold off a charging Daniel Jervis from Wales, who was sitting third much of the race before making a move in the last portion of the race to grab silver in 14:48.67. Grabbing third was Australian Mack Horton in 14.51.05.

Those three were well ahead of the rest of the field, with fourth going to South African Brent Szurdoki (15:28.60).
