    I'd guess no woman has had all 4 records at once. The 1500 didn't become a championship event until 1972. European women tended to have the 1500 records in the early years of the event, and they didn't run the mile too often or indoors too often. Mary Decker Slaney would be the one of the few who ran a lot of miles, 1500s, indoors, and outdoors. I don't think she ever had the outdoor records.

    Off to do some research.

    Historical question, but related to Dibaba's record, so I ask it here: She now has both (indoor and outdoor) 1500 WR, and the indoor mile WR. Let's say she gets the outdoor mile WR. Has a woman had all 4 of these at once? If so, who? (By the way, not a trivia quiz -- I don't know the answer. I could probably figure it out, I want to give someone out there the satisfaction of providing the answer.)

    Dibaba's effort is 2nd fastest women's mile ever indoor or out (behind Masterkova's 4:12.56). Also fastest in 19 years.

    Took 3.82 seconds of previous indoor record (Milente's).

    Only woman to have run a faster 1500m indoors is Genzebe Dibaba... in 2014.

    Hmmmmm!
    Not the world record or coached world records, Jesse Owen's coach got four WRs in a day (45 minutes, actually).

    First time under 60 seconds!!

    ADD: We might get FOUR World Records, as Genzebe said she wants to get her own 1500 WR enroute--which means they'll be timing the 1500 splits!!
    Technically Haroun has also set a WJR. Born 1997.

    I was amused and bemused by her most recent blog wherein she gauged her fitness by whether she could sit on the toilet like a "normal" person.

    Sure would be nice not to have to click 3+ times to get to a result.

    In the "B" 500 race, Mark English won in 1:00.93 over Erik Sowinski's 1:01.72!
    Haroun's WR attempt is later!
    But not bad for a B race!

    Tim Nedow of Canada took the SP with 69-11-75, or 21.33.
    Only "B" races have been run so far, with a Men's 800 taken by Nick Kipkoech in 1:46.93 being the best mark so far.

    Phoebe Wright tweeted earlier, showing a graphic of Dibaba's expected pace of 2:36.5 through 1000---

    I hope an American is pacing. That way, they can pretty much run an AR in the 1K. WTF

    Good old Phoebe!!
    LOL
