There is a nice Big 3 at 1,500 this year with Kiplagat, Souleiman and Kiprop trading places at the top. Eunice Sum was too good in the 800 as Ajee Wilson beat Brenda Martinez's poor tactics. Genzebe Dibaba returned to form, Molly Huddle was the best of the Americans, and Aman kept winning as Duane Solomon ran 1:44.90.
She was an underdog in both races which included Olympic champ Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and at Pre was given lane 1. She was actually mostly considered a LJer before this year.
