Thompson takes US 1500m title


Josh Thompson produced a stunning performance at the USATF Indoor Championships in Albuquerque on Saturday, kicking off the front to take victory in the men’s 1500m in 3:44.07 with a blazing 26.86 final lap. It was Thompson’s first US title.

It was also a great weekend for Karissa Schweizer, who finished second in the 3000 and third in the 1500m, with her Bowerman Track Club teammate Shelby Houlihan taking victory in both.

Courtney Frerichs was in action in the women’s 3000m, the steeplechase specialist finishing fifth in 8:57.15 while Izaic Yorks was 13th in the men’s 3000m. Meanwhile in Seattle, Lopez Lomong led home a high-quality field in the men’s 3000m, clocking 7:45.82 ahead of teammate Marc Scott (7:46.11), Evan Jager (7:46.24) and Sean McGorty (7:46.76).

In Boston, James Randon finished seventh in the men’s mile in 3:59.85, his first time below the four-minute barrier this season.
