Week 3 Indoor Results – Peters & Gillespie impress

The track of choice for Oregon Project's record attempts

NCAA Indoor season is officially open for business. After a few low-key weeks leading up, this week saw the Boston Terrier Invitational on the extremely fast BU indoor facility, now commonly associated with Oregon Project’s indoor record attempts.

Perhaps somewhat fittingly, on what would have been Steve Prefontainne’s 63rd birthday, Galen Rupp took the American 2 mile record down to an implausible 8:07 at Boston. Salazar’s athletes swerve the very British idealogy behind using cross country for strength during the winter months, albeit in a US environment slightly less conducive to a XC season after college than in Britain. Instead Rupp has been working on his speed and will attempt the US mile indoor record again in the coming months, looking for sub 3:50. Remains to be seen whether he carry such form outdoors, which he failed to do last year.

Anyway, we digress. Away from the professional ranks at this meet, the depth was again second-t0-none. In the men’s 3000m, a charge of British & Irish athletes were led through by Matt Gillespie and Rich Peters, 1st and 2nd respectively, in 7:52 (video). Both times should be enough to qualify them in the top 16 come the season cut-off for Nationals. Not content with 7:52, Gillespie had already posted a 4:01 mile shortly before. Why not?! Iona graduate Mitch Goose also featured in this race, racing unattached he clocked 4:04.

Remember that qualification to Nationals in Albuquerque relies on a top 16 ranking in the event. No longer auto and provisional times are considered.

Sprint-wise, LSU’s Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake’s 20.98 over the one lap will be on the periphery in a month’s time for qualification.

Arguably the best performance on the ladies’ side came from milers Georgia Peel (altitude adjusted) and Eli Kirk. Peel’s 4:38, and Kirk’s 4:39 (UAB school and facility record), will again be perhaps agonisingly close to qualification basing off last year’s benchmark of 4:36. The two still have plenty of time to further lower their time.

Elsewhere, Tulsa alumni Chris O’Hare took a win in his first professional race winning the 1500m in the Glasgow International match in 3:48. After a pedestrian pace up to 1280m, O’Hare turned on the style to narrowly win from Charlie Grice and a fairly dazed Kenyan who closed too quickly after being 10m adrift at the bell. Former Lobo Lee Emanuel showed he is great shape ahead of 2014, with a 3:54 mile win at the New Balance Games in Boston, while former Butler Bulldog returned to form with 7:59 3000m win in Indiana.
