Shalaya Kipp Clocks Season Best to Advance to Worlds
Shalaya Kipp was good in June, but she needed to be better in July – and she was.
The University of Colorado senior placed third in last month’s 3,000-meter steeplechase at the USA Track & Field Outdoor Championships, earning a spot on the U.S. roster for the IAAF World Championships in Athletics this summer.
But Kipp finished the race in 9:46.83, not the ‘A’ standard of 9:43.00 needed to automatically advance. In order to solidify her spot on the team she had to run under 9:43 before July 20....more
Finding herself outside the sport helped Alexi Pappas' running career fully take off
If you didn't know Alexi Pappas before the 3,000-meter steeplechase at March's Stanford Invitational Meet, you'd be hard-pressed to forget her after the race's close.
Not only did the 23-year-old Dartmouth graduate come in first place, she did so in spectacular style. While the other runners in the race sported standard-issue kits, Pappas smoked the field in a homemade singlet with polka-dot stripes, black, lace-trimmed shoulders and a picture her brother had drawn of a flying horse pinned on the front....more
Nicole Bush, Ashley Higginson punch ticket to Moscow, Shalaya Kipp will need to run the "A"
Because Bush had achieved the IAAF World Championships “A” standard, and Higginson the “B,” Kipp is the only one of the group who needs to record a mark under 9:43.00, which would give her the second “A” and complete the team. Only two A’s and one B are allowed to travel to Moscow. If Kipp does not run an “A” time before July 20, then Cheever will take over the final qualifying spot, as she has already run under 9:43.00.
Nicole Bush Runs Away With U.S. Steeple Title
Four years after breaking her foot because an official set a barrier at the wrong height, Nicole Bush won her first national 3,000m steeplechase title at the USA Outdoor Track & Field Championships on Saturday, timing 9:44.53 in extremely hot conditions. Bush led wire to wire, qualifying for her first IAAF World Outdoor Championships team....more

2013 NCAA Women’s 3,000m Steeplechase: Emma Coburn Wins As Colleen Quigley Gets The "A"
From the gun, it was essentially a two-woman race between Coburn and Colleen Quigley of Florida State. Aside from Quigley approaching Coburn throughout the race, Coburn steadily maintained her lead and eventually crossed the finish line a champion. From day one of the NCAA Championships through the final day, Coburn proved her number one ranking and continues to hold as a serious contender in the women’s 3000 meter steeplechase....more
Sudha Singh sets India national mark in steeplechase
The 26-year-old Asian Games champion clocked 9:45.60 to improve upon her national record of 9:47.70 set last year. The effort helped Sudha achieve the qualifying mark for the August 10-18 world athletics championships to be held in Moscow....more
