All-Universe Sean Wade, again riding his M50 superfitness, claimed a world record for the indoor 1500 Sunday at the Boston University Last Chance Meet. (See results here.) Running with collegians, Sean was fourth in his mile heat in 4:26.53. But someone graciously arranged to get his 1500 time, which was 4:07.01. That shatters the listed M50 WR of 4:09.98 by France’s Pierre Faucheur. in 2006 and the listed American record of 4:10.07 by Anselm LeBourne in 2011. Earlier this season, he snagged mile and 3000 indoor WRs. Age-graded, Sean’s 4:07 is worth an open time of 3:35.7. (The actual WR is 3:31.18.) On Facebook, Sean was modest, saying he could have done better and was looking forward to outdoors now. His likely goals: 1500 WR of 3:58.26 (by Britain’s David Heath) and mile WR of 4:25.04 by Nolan Shaheed. Go get ’em, Sean!
