Hassan too hot to handle
The Stade de France saw its fourth world best of 2014 this evening when the Netherlands’ Sifan Hassan stopped the clock at 3:57 dead to win the women’s 1500m at the MEETING AREVA. In doing so she also set a new Dutch record. The 21-year-old was followed home by the USA’s Jennifer Simpson, who ran a personal-best 3:57.22, and Kenya’s Hellen Obiri (3:58.89). Reigning world champion Abeba Aregawi of Sweden was tenth in 4:03.46.
