In our weekley Q&A segment we put Phoebe Wright in the hot seat and asked her a few questions. We caught up with her as she was getting ready to pace the 1,500m this week in Zurich.  Describe your childhood dream I vividly remember being 11 and just winning both the arbitrary-yard sprint and the standing long jump competitions at field day. I had a slumber party that night with my only friend at the time (my 11yr old cousin) and of course bragged about it. Probably in some sing songy annoying kid brag voice. I told her that I was the...

Jenny Simpson's Dive For Glory

Those that tuned in to see the women’s 1500 in Zurich were treated to a fantastic show on Thursday. The Diamond Race was up for grabs for three women, including Jenny Simpson, who entered the Diamond League final after winning the 1500 in Stockholm last week. Leaving nothing to chance, Simpson assumed control of the race right after the pacers stepped off. After kicking hard to win in Stockholm, we figured Simpson would opt for a sit-and-kick affair again, but she clearly felt more comfortable from the front on Thursday.  Holding th...

Five Elements of The Wetmore Factor

The Colorado Buffaloes are seemingly always in contention for a national title. The history of the program as well as Boulder’s location in the Rocky Mountains makes CU the perfect spot for landing some of the best talent in the country.  Another factor setting the Buffs apart is legendary coach, Mark Wetmore, whose 19 years of prowess has inspired the term “The Wetmore Factor.”  But what is the Wetmore Factor? The origin of that extra push Colorado runners seem to have on race day is widely debated, but there is no...

USTFCCCA D3 National Rankings: Pre-Season

NEW ORLEANS—The preseason NCAA Division III Men’s Cross Country National Coaches Poll is out, and the top is strikingly similar to last year’s national championship results: St. Olaf is No. 1 by a hair over No. 2 North Central (Ill.) In the poll released Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA), the defending champion Oles received five first-place votes to the Cardinals’ three. Last year was Olaf’s first title, and this is its first-ever No. 1 ranking. Afte...

Jenny Simpson Will Win the Diamond Race

We’ve reached the end of the Diamond League season, and the first of two finals is Thursday in Zurich. Points in the Diamond Race are doubled from here on out, which means athletes that are behind in the standings can ascend to the top with eight points going to event winners. While the athletes are focused on the title (and money), we’re more interested in the races themselves. Zurich will feature another stacked men’s 5K, which should be another crack at the world lead. All the major players are back from last week, and Gal...
