Lagat to run in Birmingham...

Former Washington State standout and reigning world outdoor champion at 1500 and 5000 meters Bernard Lagat will compete in the Aviva Grand Prix in Birmingham, England on February 21st.

“I was really happy with most of my season last year however unfortunately I picked up an injury mid July that was the worst possible time before Beijing. That was very disappointing for me but that is behind me now and I’m very focused on defending my titles at the World Championships in Berlin."

Lagat will open his indoor season January 30th at the Millrose Games at fabled Madison Square Garden in New York where he will attempt to tie the Wanamaker Mile win record owned by legendary Irish great Eamonn Coghlan.
