2015 Worlds Women's 1500 Preview - "On paper, this isn't a race; it's a coronation." - Can Americans Jenny Simpson and Shannon Rowbury somehow take down Genzebe Dibaba?

What a race. This race has it all. The returning champ. The European champ who has run 3:56.05. Two historically fast Americans. And, oh yeah, the world record holder. We break it down for you in 3,300 words. This preview is so good we feel guilty not charging you for it.

Don't Have The 2015 IAAF World Championships Standard? Don't Worry About It -- You Can Still Go to Worlds (Particularly If You Are American)

If you are an American fan dreaming of Beijing (or one of his fans) but don't have the standard, don't worry about it. For example, research by shows men running as slow as 3:39 and women as slow as 4:12 for 1500 would right now make it into Worlds as the IAAF is going to fill the fields up to 48 for the 800 and 45 for the 1500 and steeples.
