Another World Record For Tony Young

Over this past weekend Tony Young of Redmond won a masters 1500 meter race that was held as part of the USATF Indoor National Championships in Boston. Tony’s time of 3:57.91 was almost 10 seconds ahead of the second place finisher and beat the world record for the 45 and over age group by about 4 and a half seconds. This was Tony’s third world record this year! On January 30th Tony ran a 4:13.25 for the mile, which is the fastest mile by a 45 and over runner ever, indoor or outdoor. However, since it was on the oversized UW track it doen’t actually count as a world record. Then on February 14th Tony ran a 1:55.70 800 again beating the 45+ age group world recond. But once again, since it was on the oversized UW track it will not count as an official world record.
