2011 World 1500m champion Jenny Simpson released the following statement on her website, http://www.trackjenny.com/, about leaving coach Juli Benson and switching back to her college coach Mark Wetmore :
"I have enjoyed and will forever appreciate the past three years that I have spent training under the coaching of Juli Benson with her team at the Air Force Academy. I am enormously appreciative of the generosity of both Juli and the Air Force Academy. Their support saw me through a difficult injury in 2010, raised me to the pinnacle of the sport in 2011, and facilitated my second berth on the United States Olympic Team in 2012.
As I continue in my pursuit to be the best athlete I can be I will be moving back to Boulder and continue my career under the coaching of Mark Wetmore and Heather Burroughs. I'm excited about the coming months of training and for my friendships both in Boulder and Colorado Springs." - Jenny Simpson
