The women's steeplechase may have been the biggest upset of the London Champs. Running with focus and emotion, Emma Coburn and Courtney Frerichs ran 3:03 for 1k, 6:05 through 2k and a 2:57 last kilometer, passing their competition, who have won every major steeplechase title for the past six years.

Emma Coburn took the lead after the final water jump and Courtney Frerichs battled Hyvin Jepkemoi over the last barrier and then, spritned away!

Here's the video of their press conference!
