    Go Emma! I watched a video of her cross-training and she is a BEAST!

    Not sure it will be under 9:00 at all.

    That may be true, but I'm not so sure. The stadium is somewhat climate controlled, and if Chepkoech runs to form, meaning she doesn't go "tactical", she will go out in sub-2:55, with Kiyeng and Chespol trying to stay close.

    The Kenyans may feel they allowed Coburn and Frerichs to "steal" gold and silver because they didn't press hard enough. If so, we could see all medalists and then some go sub-9. But then again ...

    This, for me, will be one of the highlight races of the WC.

    But it could also be a slow (as in 3:15-3:20) initial km, before Chepkoech makes her move.

    If they go out slow, i actually fancy Krause's chances. During her 2000 H "WR" she ran the last round in 66 seconds, that's not something many women can do.

    I picked Krause for a medal, so I'm in favor of that scenario.

    Unfortunately, Quigley said she has scratched (her Instagram)

    Going too fast is Chepkoech's biggest possible mistake. On the other hand, how many are going to go with a 2:57 first 1000? I think she knows enough not to try to run a 2:52 first 1000. Running free and clear has advantages in the steeple, and there should not be wind issues. Not sure how hot it is going to be for the track distances races, and no one seems to have any definite information on that score.
