2016 LRC Year-End Rankings, Women's 1500: Faith Kipyegon Unseats Genzebe Dibaba as World #1; Jenny Simpson Back on Top of U.S. Rankings

Kipyegon broke the Kenyan record twice this year, won the Olympic title with ease and became just the second woman in history to break 3:57 three times in one year. Last year, Simpson's medal chances went up in smoke when her shoe came off in the WC final. This year, with her shoes on, she took bronze in Rio.

2016 LRC Year-End Rankings, Men's 1500/Mile: Olympic Champion Matthew Centrowitz Is Our World #1

Asbel Kiprop may have run the world's fastest time by over a second (3:29.33) and won four Diamond League races, but for the first time since 1971, an American man is the #1 ranked miler in the world as we can't pick against a near-perfect season from Centro that included victories at World Indoors and the Olympics and a world-leading time in the mile (3:50.63).
