Have a look at how much each runner improved from 2016 to 2017 in the 800, 1600, and 3200 meters:
Note: List uses performances in the MileSplit database. To be included, athletes must have both 2016 and 2017 performances in the database. Under 'difference', regression is indicated in parentheses and progression is indicated without parentheses.
