The heroes of the day are Mary Cain and Galen Rupp, coached by Alberto Salazar, capable of great performances respectively in 1000 and 5000m. The 17 year-old broke the world indoor junior record of 2:39.25, improving the previous 2:40.1 marked in 1982 by american Diana Richburg. This is a good start for Mary Cain, her first race under Nike Oregon Project, proving the usual great condition and conquering the fifth indoor record, after 1500m (4:11.72), mile (4:28.25), 3000m (9:04.51), and 2 miles (9:38.68). In the same race, we report also the second place of the american 1500m champion Treniere Moser, with a PB of 2:39.32. Another big time of Oregon army is achieved by Galen Rupp, leader in 5000m race with an astonishing 13:01.26, new american indoor record (previous 13:07.00 by Lopez Lomong 2013).
