Manhattan, NY
February 15, 2015
Matt Centrowitz and Nick Willis delivered the goods on Saturday night with Centro edging Willis to win the Wanamaker mile. Wanamaker mile legend Bernard Lagat took 3 seconds off the 40+ world record in the indoor mile in 4th.

Poor pacing ruined the AR attempt and Rowbury wobbled during the final straight but held on for a dominating victory. Treniere Moser 2nd, an upbeat Jordan Hasay faded the last lap, and Mary Cain struggled.

Nike Oregon Project's Cam Levins had an off day and the rival Bowerman Track Club's Lopez Lomong and Ryan Hill were glad to pick up the slack going 1-2 in the men's 5000m. German Fernandez DNFd as he was having a terrible day and going to get lapped.

The Pittsburgh grad was hoping to be the first man dub 1:00.00.
