Emma Coburn Wins World Steeplechase Title With Kick At Final Water Jump

Paris winner

"He told me that Emma races smart and that could get me in a good position to maybe crack the top five or six and hopefully get a good time".

Australian Genevieve LaCaze took inspiration as United States duo Emma Coburn and Courtney Frerichs smashed the African domination of the women's 3000m steeplechase at the world athletics championships.

Coburn grabbed the gold in a championship-record of 9 minutes, 2.58 seconds.

Coburn counts as one of her coaches Heather Burroughs, a renowned runner at the Pembroke Hill School and an All-America at the University of Colorado, where she now coaches. Earlier this week, Evan Jager became the first American to medal in the event at the world championships when he took bronze. Coburn had by far the best water jump of three and never looked back as she approached the last hurdle with no fear and went on to win in a new American record of 9:02.58, breaking the mark of 9:07.63 that she ran in Rio to grab bronze a year ago. Her 9:03.77 time smashed almost 16 seconds off her personal best, and she joined Simpson in having a great post-race celebration after crossing the line.

Coburn and Frerichs stayed with the lead pack for the entire race before racing to the front on the final lap and then putting away the competition in the closing stretch of the race.

African runners had claimed gold and silver in the women's steeplechase at each of the past three world championships.
