Led by Emily Infeld, Lots of PRs at Millrose Games

Placing third in the deepest indoor 5,000-meter race in U.S. history, Emily Infeld set a personal best of 15:00.91 at Saturday’s Millrose Games in New York City.

Also at the meet, Evan Jager placed fourth in the 3,000 in 7:40.10, just off his indoor PR, and Lopez Lomong ran an indoor personal best of 7:43.01 to place ninth in the race. Six days after setting a 3,000-meter PR in Boston, Laura Thweatt ran an indoor PR of 15:35.24 for seventh place in the 5,000.

Emily’s time bettered the outdoor 5,000 PR of 15:07.18 she set last June, and puts her third on the all-time U.S. indoor list.

The time was all the more impressive as it came in her first race of the season. Also of note: It gives Emily the Olympic standard in the event.
