2015 LRC Year-End Rankings, Women's 1500: Genzebe Dibaba Reigns Supreme; Rowbury Nips Simpson for US #1

There was no doubt who was the world #1 this year as Genzebe Dibaba had the greatest season ever for a women's 1500 runner. The battle for US #1 was more interesting as both Shannon Rowbury and Jenny Simpson had strong years. *Jenny Simpson Says Her Rivalry With Shannon Rowbury Is Good For Both Them And The Sport, Is Disappointed Lost Shoe Cost Her Opportunity For Medal at Worlds Simpson: "I was in the shape of my life [at Worlds] and I was really ready for the big moment and they just didn’t come together this yea. Ultimately, the run in Beijing was a heartbreaker for me. I put other priorities aside and put them all lower down the priority list for the sake of doing well in Beijing, so it was a real disappointment to not be able to race to my fitness there."
