Pretty blanket finish; I think that they are all in the same heat.

New PB for Jenny Simpson (old PB 2:01.20 in 2011). Good start for the season. If the final in Moscow will not be super fast she might has a chance to retain her title.

Which is why it will go out hard, I think. The gals that think that they can go 3:56 might put their cards into that strategy.

Yes, that is what they should do. But will they be able to coporate and ran a fast pace for the entire race, or will all the fast gals will sit back and hope that someone else will do the donkey work?

VERY impressed by Jenny Simpson's race and time.
At the back of the pack early, she only started moving after 400.
By her kick, she showed she could outsprint several women who have sub-2:00 PR's!
And she showed she had a LOT more in the tank!!
If she specialized in, and trained for, the 800, a 1:58 (or faster!!) is in the cards.
Finally, this bodes VERY well for a new 1500 PR for her later this year.

She said that going out in 26 is not in the cards for her, that she had to work her way back into the pack. Multiple interviews on FloTrack (free).
