Centro wins Boston mile
2nd February 2013, Boston – In his first indoor mile of 2013 Matthew Centrowitz front ran to a winning 3:56.26 in the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix in Boston. After following the early pace through 800m in 1:58 Centro controlled the race before unleashing a 56 last 400m to hold off a late charge from Will Leer.
Speaking to reporters after the race Centro said, “I didn’t expect it to be tactical, nor did I want it to be tactical. I’ve told you guys for a couple of weeks now I’m fit, I was ready to run fast. I guess with the way the field went the conditions today it just ended up being tactical.”
Matthew’s next race is in the Millrose Games in New York on February 16th.
