    Ah yes, the noble one whose "career came to an abrupt end in September 1984 when she was suspended for 18 months for refusing to undertake a drugs test after winning a 1,500m race in 3:58.63 in Paris. "

    She tried the 800m at Rio and didn't get out of the first heat with a 2:00.

    At Monaco the following year, she ran 1:56.81, which was only good for fourth behind two runners now no longer eligible and Ajee Wilson.

    She is evidently running better now overall than she was a couple of years ago.

    Hassan could break the WR easily. Once again, a huge shame we're not going to see any post-WC meets this year.

    ...With that kind of speed, maybe in the 800 as well.

    After this I wonder... I am sure Hassan could easily take down Tirunesh Dibaba's 5k WR but.... what about 3k WR? Is 8.06 possible for here? If well paced...

    I don't quite see that happening. But she could surely do it in the 5000. By a big margin.

    8:06 is the toughest record of them all. But she could certainly come much closer to it than anyone ever has. Could the 10k WR be a possiblity as well?

    I'm not suspicious of the results of any athletes training with Salazar's group. The 10K - 1500 double is one we should be used to seeing in absolutely dominating fashion.
