David McCarthy of West Waterford AC runs another sub 4 min mile in Boston...

At the Boston University Terrier Invitational meet today (Sat 26th Jan), Galen Rupp of the US won the indoor mile race in a time of 3:50.92. There was a lot of speculation before the race that Rupp was going to break the American Indoor Mile record of 3:49.89 but it wasn't to be.

In second place, David McCarthy of West Waterford AC ran 3:57.22 which was slightly down on the 3:55.75 when he won this race last year.
