Freitas, the 2016 NCAA 1500 for Mississippi St, was happy to win after finishing a disappointing sixth at Europeans.
"I am happy with my record. The European Championships did not go that well for me so it is great to come back and win here today. I just graduated from college and will go back to the US and plan the next steps," said Marta Pen Freitas.
Efraimson's PB coming in for the full mile was 4:27.39. However, her time today equates to a 4:05.21 1500 , slower than her 4:03.39 pb which dates to 2015.
