Nolan Shaheed tunes up for Boston with American record 1500
Nolan Shaheed, who snagged USATF Athlete of the Week in January for his M60 mile indoor record, ran one of his first outdoor meets of 2010 last night in Norwalk, California. The result? He ran the 1500 in 4:31.33 at the California Relays at Cerritos College, which beats the listed American record of 4:32.09 by Jim Sutton in July 1991. (The M60 world record is 4:27.65.) The results are here. (Click on Heat #2) He’ll be in Boston next week for masters indoor nationals, where he’s entered in the 4, 8, 15 and 3000. He’s one of the stars highlighted in this USATF press release. Nice job, Nolan. Get rested for nationals!
