NBIGP Preview: WR Alert: Christian Coleman Goes For History, Jenny Simpson Battles Emma Coburn, King Ches Races Gebrhiwet & More

The lone US stop on the IAAF World Indoor Tour should be a dandy as the fastest man in history at 60m, Christian Coleman, will go for the WR in a matchup that features America’s top two young sprint talents as Noah Lyles (200m DL champ) is also in the race. Emma Coburn battles Jenny Simpson for the first time on the track since ditching coach Mark Wetmore, and Edward Cheserek takes a big step up in class and battles Ethiopian stars Hagos Gebrhiwet and Dejen Gebremeskel in the men’s 3000 -- just a day after he tries to break 3:50 in the mile. Plus the return of Boris Berian. *MB: Official 2018 NBIGP Discussion Thread: Christian Coleman in the 60, King Ches vs Hagos & Simpson v Coburn in 3k + BB Returns
