Brannen is already the Canadian outdoor record holder at 2:16.52: http://o.canada.com/sports/nat...ord-1000m/
David Torrence, who was part of a world record 4x800 relay in Boston the week before, said after his disappointing sixth place 1500-meter finish at the USA Indoor Championships, “I know there is so much more there. That there is light at the end of the tunnel.” For him that "light" could be running 1000 meters faster than 2:17.86, which he’ll attempt to do at the BU Last Chance Meet at Boston University on Sunday. The race will include Nate Brannen, who’ll try for a Canadian record, and BU’s own Rich Peters, a 3:57 miler who’ll seek the U.S. collegiate best.
He seems likely to take down the indoor record of 2:19.04 by Simon Hoogewerf. The US record is Krummenacker's 2:17.86.
Peters is British. If he wants the British record it's 1000 2:17.86 Matthew Yates.
Random fact - we guess the british and american records are the same.
