2016 LRC Year-End world Rankings, Women’s Steeplechase: https://t.co/HWdnQrxBv5

There was a very clear pecking order at the top of the women’s steeple in 2016: Jebet-Kiyeng-Coburn. Four times those women took the start line together and four times they went 1-2-3 in that order. What Coburn did in 2016 shouldn’t have come as a surprise to anyone who had been following her career over the previous few years, but it’s worth putting into context. Very few American distance runners consistently run some of the fastest times in the world, place highly in Diamond League meets and win medals at major championships. Coburn did all three this year, setting the American record in her very fist steeple (despite missing time over the winter due to an Achilles injury), before commandingly winning her third straight U.S. title and lowering the American record again en route to a bronze medal in Rio. No American female steepler has ever had a better year.
