Irishman Eamonn Coghlan, who lost his record for the most Wanamaker Mile wins at the Millrose Games to Bernard Lagat last Friday in New York, surrendered another record yesterday.

Running in the Russian Under-23 Indoor Championships in Moscow on Monday, 40 year-old Vyacheslav Shabunin placed fourth in the 1500m in 3:44.39, toppling Coghlan's previous 40-and-over best of 3:45.3 set in New York City on Feb. 26, 1993.

For Shabunin, a three-time Olympian, this was his second world masters indoor record this season.  He also clocked 8:04.34 for 3000m in Yekaterinburg on Jan. 7, bettering the mark of another Irishman, Marcus O'Sullivan, who ran 8:09.13 at Penn State (University Park), in 2002.

Shabunin is the Russian record holder for 1500m both indoors and outdoors, with career best times of 3:36.68 and 3:32.28, respectively.
