Lomong breaks Lagat's Millrose mile record



Sudanese-born Lopez Lomong edged defending champion Matthew Centrowitz in a meet-record time, edging his 2012 US Olympic teammate to win the feature mile showdown at Saturday's 106th Millrose Games.

Lomong, the 2008 US Olympic flag bearer who escaped Sudan soldiers to become a two-time Olympian, won in 3 minutes 51.21 seconds to edge Centrowitz by .13 of a second with Irish Olympian Ciaran O'Lionaird third in 3:52.10.

The old meet record was 3:52.87 set by Bernard Lagat in 2005 when the meet was still staged at Madison Square Garden. The indoor event is now conducted at the city Armory.

Lagat was a winner on Saturday as well, capturing the two-mile event in 8:09.49.

Canada's Sheila Reid won the women's mile in 4:27.02.

US Olympian Darvis Patton won the men's 60 metres in 6.50 seconds with Zambia's Gerald Phiri second in 6.64 while English Gardner captured the women's 60 in 7.19, .03 ahead of Jeneba Tarmoh.

Jeff Porter captured the 60m hurdles in 7.59, edging Jamaica's Andrew Riley by .01 in a showdown of 2012 Olympians. Yvette Lewis won the women's 60 hurdles in 7.84.
