2016 Olympic Women's Steeple Preview: Can Emma Coburn Earn the U.S.'s First Steeple Medal? Will The World Record Fall?

Kenyan-born Ruth Jebet of Bahrain (8:59.97) and reigning world champ Hyvin Kiyeng of Kenya (9:00.01) almost broke the world record at Pre and sit 2-3 on the all-time world list. Coburn has the #3 time in the world this year thanks to her American record in the same race, but to get a medal, she'll have to beat either Jebet, Kiyeng or reigning Olympic champ Habiba Ghribi of Tunisia (whose 9:05.36 last year puts her #4 all-time).
