When the Olympic men's 100 and 1500 meter champions are both in action, it's a pretty good weekend. Tonight, Jakob Ingebrigtsen goes in the 5,000 at the Track Meet in California, tomorrow Marcell Jacobs squares off against Olympic silver medalist Fred Kerley in Nairobi. We've got you covered with previews of both meets below and should have plenty more to talk about by Monday.

Matthew Centrowitz has been MIA so far in 2022 but was just announced for the Bowerman Mile at Pre. But what about Jenny Simpson? Colleen Quigley? And what the hell is going on with Sha'Carri Richardson? There are still seven weeks until USAs, but no one wants to go in cold to a national championship. Watch this space.
