Coburn, Frerichs complete shock U.S. one-two in steeplechase

Coburn, Frerichs complete shock U.S. one-two in steeplechase

These marked the first two steeplechase medals for US women since the event began at the world championships in 2005.

Kenya's Beatrice Chepkoech, who caused so much drama within the race, finished in fourth, with world record hold Jebet finishing down in fifth in the 15-strong event.

Coburn launched her attack in the last 200 meters, leaping over the final water jump and surging down the straight to win in a Championship record time of 9 minutes 2.58 seconds. Furthermore, Courtney Frerichs caused arguably an even bigger surprise to take the silver medal in a massive new personal best of 9:03.77, with defending champion Jepkemoi forced to settle for bronze. A pack of six runners including the two Americans broke away before Coburn took the lead in the final lap.

Miller-Uibo was well on course to add the world title to the Olympic crown she earned at Rio 2016 before an extraordinary breakdown just 20m from the line, where she stumbled after losing concentration, dashed her hopes of victory.

After an injury-interrupted buildup, Aussie Genevieve LaCaze was 11th in 9:26.25 - two spots worse than her result at last year's Rio Olympics. "So that's what I was thinking".

"My coach (Jerry Schumacher) had told me to just go for it", Frerichs told NBC after the race. "I have memories from 2015 and 2016 where I went too early for the last push, so I just had to keep trusting myself and be patient, and it looks like it paid off".

There was no doubt that Coburn was a potential medal contender heading into the final, though both her and Frerichs remained calm and composed throughout to secure a surprising American 1-2 in London.

"I thought in a ideal day, I could sneak in for a medal, and Joe [her coach] kept telling me anything was possible, and kept reminding me of the hard workouts I've done; That I've been really healthy this year, and running well and training well", she said. "I knew she was going to execute an awesome race and there was just such an extreme level of comfort". Only one man, an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent named Horace Ashenfelter, has won a world title in the steeplechase (at the 1952 Olympics).

"I am very happy to win the bronze medal".
