Lagat, Simpson Returning to Defend at Fifth Avenue Mile

Headlining the women’s race along with Simpson will be Great Britain’s Hannah England, the 2011 IAAF World Championships silver medalist at 1500 meters behind Simpson, and Shannon Rowbury, a two-time Olympian at 1500 meters whose sixth-place finish in London was the highest ever by a U.S. woman. Rowbury, the 2009 IAAF World Championships bronze medalist at 1500 meters, won the Fifth Avenue Mile in 2009 and 2010.
