Shannon Osika won the 1500m international race at the 2019 Harry Jerome Track Classic.

She sat in third for the first half of the race, then the pacer dropped off and she took over the lead and eventually opened up at 15m gap and held it until 200m were remaining – down the stretch the race tightened up – she finished in 4:09, she was aiming for slightly faster.

She will be racing the 2019 Prefontaine Classic at the end of June.
