The reigning World Champion made history at the Millrose Games by breaking the world indoor (short rack) record with a 56.97 kick on the 2-mile run, surpassing Mo Farah’s former mark of 8:03.40 from 2015 by three seconds. Josh Kerr from Britain tracked the leader, Grant Fisher, from lap one until the last 400 meters, eventually overtaking him to claim victory in 8:03.62. Fisher’s time is now third in history behind Kerr and Farah, and also holds the overall American record, surpassing both Galen Rupp’s indoor mark of 8:07.41 from 2014 and Matt Tegenkamp’s outdoor mark of 8:07.07 from 2007.
