Bernard Lagat seeks Millrose record


NEW YORK -- Bernard Lagat is looking to fill in the one missing record in his list of American indoor middle-distance marks.

He'll run the 2 miles Saturday at the 106th Millrose Games.

At the storied indoor track meet last year, he regained the 5,000 record. But on the same day, Galen Rupp took his mark in the 2 miles.

So Lagat will race the 2 miles at the Armory looking to run faster than 8 minutes, 9.72 seconds. He also holds the records in the 1,500, mile and 3,000.

Other big names in Saturday's meet include Olympic gold medalists Brittney Reese (long jump) and Jenn Suhr (pole vault) and silver medalist Jason Richardson in the 60-meter hurdles.
