Steps to Beijing Episode 4 ft. IAAF World Championship bound Jenny Simpson
"Really believe in race visualization because I think training the mind is equally important, if not more important, when it comes to being on that edge against the best in the world." -Jenny Simpson

Some say the only thing better than winning is losing...and then winning it back. After storming to a gold medal in the 1500m at the 2011 World Championships in Daegu, South Korea, #TeamNB's Jenny Simpson was on top of the world. In 2013, she returned to the World Championships in Moscow, Russia, and narrowly missed capturing her second title by just .32 of a second. When it's all you think about, a third of a second is a long time.
Since that day, Jenny has been counting the 2,040,805 steps until she could return to the 2015 IAAF World Championships in Beijing, China, for another shot at Gold. This season, she is pushing herself harder than ever before, determined to leave her mark in Beijing.
