How did you remember all of that??? wrote:
Nikki Hiltz also impressive as well. Her (4:01), Osika (4:01), Schneider (4:01c), Purrier (4:02), Grace (4:02), Schlauctenhaufen (4:03), McGee (4:03), Johnson (4:03), Cranny (4:04) are making America incredibly deep in the 1500m. Then there's sub 4 runners Houlihan and Simpson of course. Add in Coburn (4:03), that's 12 under 4:05. Missing anyone?
Wow! I'm impressed you could remember all those names and times. You missed a few details: Cranny's SB/PB is 4:05.83, so you need to drop her, and add Alexa, who ran 4:04.06 in May. McGee's PB/SB is 4:04.14, and Coburn's is 4:04.40.
Here's the IAAF's list fastest Americans for 2019. You can change the dates to see how this year compares to others:https://www.iaaf.org/records/all-time-toplists/middle-long/1500-metres/outdoor/women/senior?regionType=countries®ion=usa&page=1&bestResultsOnly=true&firstDay=2017-12-30&lastDay=2019-10-01
Thank-you. Yeah, I made a few errors in there. Also, as someone mentioned add Martinez (4:03 PB) if she stays healthy and on her feet in a race. Charlene Lipsey (4:04) under as well. Maybe even Jones/Hurta emerge as well next year. Also Quigley (4:03 PB). That's 17 runners.
We might have a few 4:01-4:03 runners at the trials next year not even make a final. This has to be the hardest team to make men or women distance. I'm guessing Grace/Martinez/Lipsey go with the 800m, with Schneider/Purrier/Cranny at 5k (-1 spot if Houlihan can double at the games) and obviously Coburn/Quigley at steeple. That's still at least 9 of them for the 1500m.
