LRC Lausanne DL Preview: Centro vs. Kiprop vs. Souleiman in a Loaded 1k, Olympic Silver Medallists Hellen Obiri & Genzebe Dibaba Battle over 3k, Plus a Fast Women's 800

We hope you have recovered from the Olympics as on Thursday, Lausanne will serve up a few tasty matchups at the crossover distances of 1000 and 3000 meters. Centro has an outside shot at Rick Wohlhuter's 42-year-old American record of 2:13.9 but he'll have some serious competition on his hands. Indoor world champ Dibaba tackles Obiri in the 3k while Francine NiyonsabaMargaret Wambui and Melissa Bishop are all entered in the women's 800.

World Athletics:

Lavillenie, who lives a few hours from the stadium, has won this meet in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2014. Switzerland's Euro Indoor champ Selina Buchel will race in the 800.
