Yes/No: Cheever Sub-4:20 in Ninove, Belgium?

Team USA Minnesota teammates Gabriele Anderson and Jamie Cheever are spending their summer chasing fast times and great competition in Europe.  Anderson has been rewarded with an all-time best by a Minnesota woman in the 1500, running 4:04 in Italy.  She will try to continue her great season by competing in the 3000 meters in Monaco at the Diamond League track meet tomorrow.

Cheever just finished running the 3000 meter Steeplechase in Gent on Wednesday, where she placed second in 9:57.51.  Cheever will continue on to Ninove for a 1500 meter race on Saturday.

And Yes/No will follow Cheever to Ninove with this question...

Yes/No: Will Jamie Cheever break 4:20.00 in the 1500 in Ninove, Belgium on Saturday?

Jamie Cheever has a personal best of 4:19.39 in the 1500.  She just ran 4:25.64 in Kortrijk, Belgium last weekend, and previously had run a 9:51 personal record in the steeplechase to qualify for the finals at the USA Championships in June.

The entry list for the 1500 at Ninove is listed HERE.

My Answer:  Yes

The Yes/No question last week was: Will Barbora Špotáková win the javelin throw at the Diamond League meet in London on Saturday?  The answer was  no - Špotáková finished second.  Twenty players answered correctly this week.  Gloria Jansen was joined by Mike Mason in first place with eighteen points.  There are three with sixteen points (Ryan Aylesworth, Heather Jelen and Rich Cowles).
