9 months ago

Yared Nuguse became the first American male to win a Diamond League 1500 since 2011 as he got the big win in London as his OAC teammate Alicia Monson got the American record in the 5000 by running 14:19. Noah Lyles ran super fast, but barely won.

Friday in Monaco Faith Kipyregon obliterated the women's mile world record as Nikki Hiltz got the American record.

After these big wins and fast times, which Americans have the best chances to medal in the distances.

The Chicago Marathon fields are out and Kelvin Kiptum will be in Chicago, could he get the world record? Ruth Chepngetich and Sifan Hassan will square off on the women's side while Emily Sisson could lower the AR.
