FinishLynx technology provided timing and results for the New Balance Indoor meet on Saturday, February 2, 2013 at the Reggie Lewis Center in Boston. The IAAF permit meet saw 16 year old Mary Cain run 9:38.68 for 2 miles – a performance that is the single best mark in US HS girl’s distance history. Cain broke the existing record (held by Melody Fairchild for over 20 years) by more than 17 seconds.
Fans who packed the Reggie Lewis Track & Field Facility here were treated to three world-leading marks, a world junior record, two meeting records and American high school and junior records at the 18th New Balance Indoor Grand Prix on Saturday (2), the only IAAF Indoor Permit Meeting in the United States this year.
