Jenny Simpson: Transcend (Bonus Clip)

Apr 6, 2017

For three years, Jenny Simpson chased Sally Kipyego in nearly every conference, regional and national race in college. The challenge inspired Simpson to push herself throughout her career at Colorado. In their first match-up, Kipyego beat Simpson by 45 seconds, and it wasn't until their final match-up at the 2009 Big 12 Indoor Championships that Simpson finally beat her rival.
