On this week’s Friday 15, we start with a dicey topic but one that a female, sexual assault survivor brought up with us this week.

Then we wonder about the futures of Galen Rupp and Donovan Brazier? Which of the two, both of whom have been battling injuries of late, is more likely to make the US Olympic team? Which of the two is more likely to make an impact if they make it to Paris?

Then we turned our attention to the 2023 United Airlines NYC Half. Is Jacob Kiplimo the future or can Joshua Cheptegei regain his crown as the king of distance? In the women’s race, Molly Huddle is a key figure for us and don’t be surprised if Diane van Es of the Netherlands turns some heads.

Along the way, we also wonder if Ellie Shea is as good as Katelyn Tuohy and Rojo apologizes for saying that Nico Young was a better pro prospect than Katelyn Tuohy – or does he?

Also, in light of Ato Boldon‘s recent tweet, is the men’s 100 the must-watch event of 2023?
