BOSTON — Results from the 2014 New Balance Indoor Grand Prix Meet, which took place at the The Reggie Lewis Track Center in Boston on Saturday, Feb. 8.

Among the highlighted events at the meet were the women’s 1,000m in which American teen prodigy Mary Cain broke her own World Junior indoor record, while the men’s 4x800m relay mark also improved.

Cain clocked 2 minutes and 35.80 seconds to win the women’s 1,000m, improving her own previous mark of 2:39.25, which she set at Boston University on Jan. 16.

“I knew this would be a fast pace,” said Cain. “I made my move with 250m to go. If I had felt better I might have gone earlier.

“I maybe could have gotten the meet record and done 2:34 something.”

Cain still thinks that she can improve: “My biggest problem right now is that I need to be stronger at maintaining a fast pace.”

American Chanelle Price ran a personal best of 2:36.63 to take second, while third went to countrywoman Sarah Brown in 2:36.90, also in a new career best.

Meanwhile, Richard Jones (1:51.01), David Torrence (1:47.46), Duane Solomon (1:47.99), and Erik Sowinski (1:46.67), running as an American All Star team, produced a new world record of 7:13.11 to win the men’s 4x800m relay race.
