Four more US stars who have graced an Olympic Games or IAAF World Championships podium – Jenn Suhr, Mary Cain, Matthew Centrowitz, and Brenda Martinez – have been added to the roster of the 20th edition of the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix, an IAAF Indoor Permit meeting, on 7 February.
In front of a crowd numbering, according to the organisers, just over 8000, Mary Cain won the first medal of any colour for a US woman in a distance longer than 800m in IAAF World Junior Championships history when she won the 3000m on Thursday evening (24).
Wilhem Belocian carried on the French tradition of producing outstanding hurdlers – think Guy Drut, Ladji Doucoure and the number one man in the world at the moment Pascal Martinot-Lagarde – when he became the first junior athlete to run the 110m hurdles faster than 13 seconds with a world junior record of 12.99.
Trayvon Bromell, one of USA’s top hopes for a gold medal at the IAAF World Junior Championships, Oregon 2014, has been running fast for a long time this season.
Young sprinters and hurdlers rewrote the record books, while Mary Cain confirmed her serious intentions at the under-20 level at the USA Junior Championships, held in Eugene on Saturday and Sunday (5-6).
Two days from racing in her second IAAF Diamond League meeting of the season, and one practically on home turf in New York, Mary Cain was stressed out on Thursday (12).
A two-time Olympic gold medallist, a three-time world champion, and the most dynamic young US middle-distance runner in a generation are among the latest athletes added to the field of the adidas Grand Prix in New York on June 14, organisers for the IAAF Diamond League meeting announced on Thursday (15).
Ryan Whiting is in the form of his life ahead of defending his title at the IAAF World Indoor Championships next month after winning the shot on the final day of action at the US Indoor Championships in Albuquerque with one of the best indoor throws in history.
The New Balance Indoor Grand Prix, an IAAF Indoor Permit meeting, delivered the expected world indoor 4x800m record* as a US All Stars team led home by Erik Sowinski clocked 7:13.11 on Saturday (8).
When there’s already a winning formula in place, you don’t want to tinker with it too much. So the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix, an IAAF Indoor Permit meeting, on Saturday (8) will feature world and Olympic medallists in the 3000m, two miles, one mile, and 1000m, as well as an attack on the world indoor 4x800m record – a mark set at this meeting back in 2000.
