I can assure you that pretty much all of the gals running sub 8:30 and 15 (Ayana, Defar and company) would absolutely crush 4 minute in the 1500m without changing a thing in their train
Would Huddle? Her 1500 is 4:08.
Infeld? She was a 1500 runner for a good while, but it seems more likely that she will break 15 than 4.[/quote]
It is impressive range. Besides Slaney and Jenny, Regina was closest with 8:39.
I think Jenny will go sub-2 at some point.
Molly will never get close to sub-4 or sub-2.
Among current runners, I think the one with possibly the best chance (besides Jenney) is Houlihan (2:01, 4:03, 15:06). Alexa has not demonstrated to this point that she has the stamina for sub-15. And who knows if Cain will ever run as fast as she did at age 18.
