Ingvill Makestad sets Norwegian national record in mile...

Former University of Washington standout Ingvill Makestad (left/photo courtesy runingvill.wordpress.com) set a Norwegian national record in the women's one mile run with her fifth place finish in Saturday's Aviva Indoor Grand Prix meet in Birmingham, England.

The former Husky was towed to a clocking of 4:28.49 in a race that was won by Ethiopia's Gelete Burka in a world leading time of 4:23.53, and included several world championship and Olympic finalists.

Makestad's mark is currently the fifth fastest time in the world this season.

Earlier this season, she ran 4:11.30 for 1500 meters in Stockholm, also a Norwegian national record.
