Tony Young beats the indoor mile World Record for 45 and over

On January 31st at the UW Invitational at the Dempsey Indoor track 46 year old Tony Young of Redmond, WA ran a 4:13.25 in the mile. This was not only faster than indoor world record for age 45 and over but the fastest mile indoor or outdoor that a runner 45 or older has ever run. Unfortunately, since the UW indoor track is an oversized track Tony’s time will not count as the official world record. The¬†official indoor mile record¬†is 4:21.90 by Albin Swenson. The previous fastest indoor or outdoor mile was a 4:16.09, which Tony ran outdoors last year down in Gresham, OR. If you would like to see a video of Tony’s indoor world record, it is at Flotrack.com. Also, you can see a post race interview with Tony at Runnerspace.com.
