It was a tremendous race to end the Diamond League season. 
Discuss: Jagerrrrr 8.04.71 - New Steeplechase American Record!!!

Brenda Martinez got the huge win and Ajee Wilson likely will end 2014 as the world leader at 800. 

Kiprop, Kiplagat and Souleiman all had $40,000 reasons to win this one but Makhloufi was your winner. Galen Rupp PRd and was in the the thick of it with 200m to go, but didn't have the wheels the last 200m. *Video highlights added

Justin Gatlin had the fastest 100, 200 same day double ever as he crushed the competition in Brussels. *Video of both races.
