Germany’s Eva Trost zaps Alisa Harvey WR in W50 indoor 800

Like mother, like daughter.

Eurovets report that Germany’s Eva Trost set a W50 world indoor record Feb. 10 in the 800 at Munich, clocking 2:16.73. But that’s not the most amazing thing. Eva ran in the same race as her daughter, Katharina, who timed 2:04.61. Eva’s time beats the listed WR of Alisa Harvey, who did 2:18.14 in 2016. Another middle-distance shocker has emerged from a Feb. 9-10 Boston University meet. Chris Chisholm ran 4:42.14 to nip Nolan Shaheed’s listed M55 mile indoor WR and American record of 4:42.89. Only, Guy Bracken of Britain had lowered that to 4:39.84. But Chris still deserves American record recognition. He’s getting help and advice on filing paperwork. And a moment of silence for Sir Roger Bannister, the reason many of us are here. A life of service and inspiration. shows how tough the M55 indoor mile is this season.

    Dutchwoman Nicole Weijling-Dissel unfortunately has been injured and was not able to do indoor this winter. Last year she improved the 800 W50 to 2:13 outdoor.
