Jenny Simpson Cements Legacy As An All-Time Great in U.S. Running
At the 2011 World Championships in Daugu, South Korea, Team New Balance star Jenny Simpson shocked the world by racing her way to a gold medal in a time of 4:05.40 in the 1500M.
Fast-forward to today, the 2013 World Championships in Moscow, and another shot at a World Championships medal. Once again Jenny came up strong, finishing second behind Sweden's Abeba Aregawi (4:02.67) in a time of 4:02.99. Today's silver medal makes Simpson the most-decorated American in the 1500M of all time.
