London Saturday: Mercy Cherono Wins As Molly Huddle Almost Gets The Upset, Eunice Sum Stays Perfect And Nijel Amos Wins A Nail Biter With David Rudisha
Huddle was the only one to go with the rabbit and was still in contention with 100 to go, but lost out to the world silver medalist Cherono. In the steeple there was a fierce battle between Conseslus Kiopruto and Jarius Birech, Eunice Sum dominated the 800 and Nijel Amos and David Rudisdha finished only .10-seconds apart while Boris Berian went for it. In non-distance action, Renaud Lavillenie cleared 6-meters, Valerie Adams lost again and South Africa's Wayde van Niekerk blew the 400 field away. We recap it all here.

Silas Kiplagat, Ayanleh Souleiman and Asbel Kiprop plus Leo Manzano and Matt Centrowitz, who will race the mile, David Rudisha squares off against Adam Kszczot at 600, while world leader Ajee Wilson and world champ Eunice Sum resume their rivalry in the 800.
Monaco DL Preview: Oh Baby What A Meet - Evan Jager goes for the AR in men's steeple, the American women take on the world's best at 800 & 5000, and a high jump for the ages
This year's meet should be titled "The Greatest 3 Hours in Track & Field." In addition to a dream 800 and a world record attempt in the 1500, Evan Jager seems poised to take down the AR in the men's steeple. Might there also be an AR in the women's 5000 where Americans Molly Huddle, Shannon Rowbury, Kim Conley and Jordan Hasay will take on Genzebe Dibaba. The women's 800 is loaded as Ajee Wilson, Laura Roesler and Molly Beckwith-Ludlow battle Eunice Sum. There's also Tyson Gay and Justin Gatlin against Panama's Alonso Edward in the 200 and a high jump featuring five of the top 12 jumpers of all time. *IAAF Preview
