Before we start our World Championships previews, we thought it would be a good idea to take a step back and look big picture at what has transpired so far this year in the world of track and field. There have been a lot of amazing developments so far in 2015. We list five events that if we'd predicted them at the beginning of the year, you'd have said we were TOTALLY crazy.
Huddle was the only one to go with the rabbit and was still in contention with 100 to go, but lost out to the world silver medalist Cherono. In the steeple there was a fierce battle between Conseslus Kiopruto and Jarius Birech, Eunice Sum dominated the 800 and Nijel Amos and David Rudisdha finished only .10-seconds apart while Boris Berian went for it. In non-distance action, Renaud Lavillenie cleared 6-meters, Valerie Adams lost again and South Africa's Wayde van Niekerk blew the 400 field away. We recap it all here.
