Centrowitz wins and Cunningham surprises at the US indoors
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Olympian Matt Centrowitz held off a late surge by Robby Andrews to win the 1,500 meters at the U.S. indoor track and field championships Saturday night.
Centrowitz finished in 3 minutes, 44.33 seconds, and Andrews followed in 3:44.40. Both advanced to next week's world championships, also at the Oregon Convention Center.
In the women's pole vault, Sandi Morris upset world record-holder Jenn Suhr with a personal best of 16 feet, 2 3/4 inches. But the biggest surprise was the record-breaking high jump victory for Vashti Cunningham, the daughter of former NFL quarterback Randall Cunningham, who is a senior in high school. She cleared 6-6 1/4.
Marvin Bracy from Trayvon Bromell were remarkably close in the 60, with Bracy coming out on top in 6.502 seconds and Bromell finishing in 6.507.
