Frerichs finishes sixth, Schweizer storms into final


Courtney Frerichs delivered another battling performance to finish a fine sixth in the women’s 3000m steeplechase final at the World Championships in Doha on Monday night, the Bowerman Track Club athlete clocking 9:11.27. The race was won by Kenya’s Beatrice Chepkoech in a championship record of 8:57.84.

Frerichs, however, was not content with her result after coming into the race as world silver medalist. “I really was anticipating great things after the prelim. Maybe it was the fast start. I haven’t put myself in that all year,” she said. “But there’s a lot to be proud of today for the US.”
