• 2 World Records at NB Indoor GP
The USA men's 800m quartet set a new 4x800m world record of 7:13.94 at the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix, an IAAF Indoor Permit meeting on Saturday (8).
The 14 year old 4x800m record that belonged to Rich Kenah, Joey Woody, Karl Paranya, and David Krummenacker was bettered by almost one second.
Another record that fell at same meeting was women's junior's world 1000m record which was reduced by almost 4 seconds by Mary Cain. The USA's running prodigy, Mary Cain, cruised to a blistering 2:35.80; the old record was 2:39.25 which Cain set three weeks ago also in Boston.
