Feb. 14, 2014
NEW YORK CITY, N.Y. - Former University of Tulsa cross country and track and field athlete Chris O'Hare completes in the NYRR Wanamaker Mile at the Millrose Games on Saturday against some of the best runners from around the globe.
O'Hare, who was the 2012 NCAA indoor Mile champion, competed in the Millrose Games last year as he shattered the collegiate mile record of 3:54.54 with a personal-best time of 3:52.98.
If O'Hare runs well in the Wanamaker Mile, he could qualify for the World Indoor Track and Field Championships.
The NYRR Millrose Games will be presented live on NBCSN from 2-4 p.m. CT and the NYRR Wanamaker Mile is scheduled at 3:48 p.m. CT.
The men's field consists of 12 runners and includes Lawi Lalang, the 2013 NCAA indoor mile and 3,000-meter champion, Alan Webb, the American open and high school record-holder in the mile, Nick Willis, a three-time Olympian and Matthew Centrowitz, the Moscow World Championships silver medalist.
