    1500 Metres - Women
    Pts
    1 Burka , Gelete ETH 3:58.79 10
    2 Alminova , Anna RUS 4:01.54 8
    3 Kibiwot , Viola KEN 4:02.70 7
    I don't think it ever was the WL. Samitova ran faster earlier that day.

      Meant to write CWT.
      Where did Samitova run and what was the result? I missed that one.

        It was the previous day (Friday), it was in Sochi, and she ran 4:03.62. A story on the performance appeared on the front page here on Saturday.

          Thank you. Found it.
          The mark doesn't seem to be on the IAAF's world list.

            She reminds me a little of Paula Radcliffe with those facial expressions. She is not pretty to watch as she does not have a smooth stroke so to speak, but she is fun to watch because she is a gutsy runner.

              She ran:
              4:27.18 Mile at Tyson Indoor on February 15
              4:04.94 at Adidas on May 18
              4:04.88 at Pre on June 8
              4:08.48 at OT on July 6
              4:05.31 at Monaco on July 31
              4:09.70 at OG semi on August 21
              4:19.76 at Gateshead on August 31
              dnf at Lausanne on September 2

              I just typed a few of her most important meets. It seems that she ran well until her last two meets after OG, so I wouldn't be surprised if she made the final at Berlin and broke 4:00 in 2009.
              none

                Yeah but she didn't improve after trials, she actually had gotten slower so I hope she takes some down time after the Nationals and retool for the 2nd half of the summer. 4:09 isn't gonna cut it in Berlin, neither is a 4:05!

                  "We've been trying to train for August and September, so we don't know how I got fit so fast. As long as we're watching it (carefully), my coach and I are happy with where we're at...I just wanted to come through in 2:08 (for 800 meters) and see how I responded. We've been hitting 2:08 pace relatively easily in practice."

                    Running a windy and solo 4:03 in May shows she has the talent to be in the mix in a world 1500 final if she stays healthy.
                    phsstt!

                      That's great news! I was worrying about that when I saw this great effort from her as she was going for it on the last lap. It was a great effort by her and very much alone.
