Emma Coburn's torrid 2014 continued as she set her fourth PR of the year in the steeple but this one was historic for her and many others in the race. Read all about it.

A focus on competition, not time gave Coburn the AR: "The goal was to win...When I got in the start line, I was just thinking to put the hammer down, go hard not necessarily for the record but to break my opponents."

Ahye remained perfect in the 100 while Schippers, who took bronze in the heptathlon at Worlds last year, won the 200 over Allyson Felix and set two national records in the span of two hours. There were also wins for Christian Taylor (triple jump), Jeff Henderson (long jump) and Blanka Vlasic (high jump).

Jordan Hasay was last in the 1500 but still PR'd by over 2 seconds while the American men struggled in the 5000.

Coburn: “I’m from Colorado and I like cold weather so it was pretty perfect and the crowd was cheering for me and I felt like a home athlete even though I’m from across the pond.”
