Kara Goucher continues her success in New York City, getting down in the NYRR Women’s Mile, delivering an impressive 4:33.19 in the New York Road Runners mile, without another runner in striking distance. Runner up, Marina Muncan finished in 4:37.77.

Reigning pole vault Olympic champion Steve Hooker lives up to all expectations, winning in 19-8.50. The Aussie attempted the world record (20-2.5) held by Sergey Bubka before calling it a night. That height however, is good enough to qualify as the best indoor performance to be recorded on U.S. soil and the new Australian indoor national record. Runner up, Derek Miles clears 18-08.25 tonight in New York City.

She cruised to an impressive victory in the elite women’s mile at the 102nd Millrose Games at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Friday Duluth native finished in 4 minutes, 33.19 seconds — easily outdistancing Serbia’s Marina Muncan in 4:37.77 and Mestawot Tadesse of Ethopia in 4:38.30.
