I expect Shelby to do better in the 1500 as it is more likely to come down to positioning and kicking the final 200.
This is Shelby Houlihan that has never broken 55, 2, 4 or 15, right? I suppose she might do better as there is no Obiri in the 1500, but Seyaum and Chepkoech come in to the field with better credentials than SH, and Muir, Hassan and Dibaba are going nowhere.
It appears that Shelby's last 2K was in around 5:33, which is worth 4:03 for 1500.
Hassan won the 1500 in 2016 in 4:04. Shelby will be in it.
