Women's Preview: Great Mid-D Action on Tap with Sum vs. Wilson vs. Sharp, Rowbury vs. Hassan; Coburn Battles Ayalew in Steeple
Tbe 3000 and 5000 are lacking depth (and we propose a combining of them at this meet) but there's nothing wrong with the mid-d events as world champ Eunice Sum will take on world leader Ajee Wilson and the in-form Lynsey Sharp. Shannon Rowbury will look to end her season with an elusive victory over world leader Sifan Hassan and world junior champ Dawit Seyaum. Finally, American record holder Emma Coburn faces Diamond League champ/world leader Hiwot Ayalew and world junior champ Ruth Jebet in the steeple.
