    European indoor 3000m champion Amy Eloise Markovc came 4th in the women's 3000m at the Millrose Games with 8:49.49, trailing quite a way back behind the American winner Alicia Monson who's finishing time of 8:31.62 was not only a personal best and a WL, but also a Millrose Games record and the fastest time ever run in that arena too.
    Ever since her collegiate breakthrough on the country in the autumn of 2018 I've always enjoyed watching Alicia Monson run. She just loves to get out to the front and grind people into submission.

    Her coach - Dathan Ritzenhein at the On Athletics Club - says he thinks she'll become America's greatest ever female distance runner. He was right last summer when he said she was in 14:40 5000m shape and she went and ran 14:42 in Monaco. Maybe he'll be right again about her long-term prospects? She was quite young for a top collegian (she's still only 23), she seems to be made of the right stuff both physically and mentally and that's a great group Ritzenhein has got there in Boulder including Hoare, Klecker, Beamish, Morgan McDonald, Sage Hurta, Carmela Cardama Baez and now Hellen Obiri as well!

      Indoor PB and equalling outdoor PB of 1.90 for Laura Zialor. Lorraine Ugen opens her season with a 6.62.

        A UK result missed from Jan 28th was Jake Heyward running what was then the 3rd fastest indoor mile by a British athlete over in Seattle (before Josh Kerr's run in New York 24 hours later pushed him down to 4th place), the 23 year old recording a time of 3:53.25 to win his race comfortably.

        (Addendum: It appears as though the track Heyward set his time on might not conform to regulation, therefore it's possible his new Welsh indoor record might not be ratifiable.)

          If it was at The Dempsey, yes, it's a 307m track. I kid you not! They have to have orange flashing lights on the top of poles to indicate the 400m marks. πŸ˜†

          I've heard it was a hall built with indoor "football" training in mind and so they laid the shortest possible track they could around the American football pitch.

            i wondered why it was not shown on Tilastopaja or WA but it is on P of 10.

                Thanks! I am lucky to have a good memory for facts and "stuff" although, at my age, year by year I feel it wane just a little bit more!

              Amber Anning goes 52.78 in the states (the Fayettville track) Very positive opening to 2022 for her after her recent 200 PB too.

                A couple of big PBs for young Kiah Dubarry-Gay over in the US: 7.33 over 60m, followed by 23.46 over 200m. Quietly progressing very nicely at Texas Tech, I think she may have a future over 400m should she try it one day.

                  Excellent 3.35 for Elliot Giles in Ostrava over 1500; he's only run faster than that outdoors once.

                    Giles' 3:35.93 takes him to 6th on the UK all-time list for 1500m indoors.

                    In the same race, Piers Copeland narrowly missed out on improving his own indoor PB, finishing in 6th place with a time of 3:38.64, just 0.09 seconds off the time he set last February in Manchester.

                    [Edit]: Also, Archie Davies was in this race too and though finishing down the field in 9th position, he also improved his indoor PB with 3:40.28.

                      Copeland got a big bump after about 300m which pushed him right to the outside of the track. That probably cost him a second.

                    Also at the Ostrava indoor meet, there was a UK 1-2 in the women's 1500m, with Revee Walcott-Nolan taking the victory just ahead of Adelle Tracey, crossing the line in 4:10.53 with the latter clocking 4:10.88. For Walcott-Nolan, it was her first indoor race over the distance since 2017, and she knocked nearly 5 seconds off her previous indoor best, while for Tracey it was the first time she has run 1500m indoors in her career.

                    Thomas Randolph, four days after coming fourth in that 800m in Nantes, repeated the result here in Ostrava, but lowered his indoor PB to 1:48.11

                      Less good news: Laura !Muir our of the Glasgow DNA event with a back injury. I hope it’s a precaution rather than something serious.

                        sounds like its a minor one judging by her comments

                      Another PB from Ed Faulds this evening in France - 46.79. He will fancy his chances of taking the u20 record held by Mark Hylton - 46.56
