Andrew Coscoran Wins Thrilling Mile At New York Indoor Grand Prix
By PJ Browne

Andrew Coscoran won a thrilling mile at the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix in New York on Sunday.

The 25-year-old Dubliner set a new personal best of 3:53.64, taking nearly two seconds off his previous best time which was set last year.

Colby Alexander set the early pace, and by the bell he held a lead of approximately 15m. However, Coscoran and fellow Irishman Luke McCann kept chipping away at the American's lead.

On the home straight, Coscoran overtook Alexander while McCann finished in third. McCann, running in his UCD singlet, finished in 3:53.87, taking just over three seconds off his previous best time.

"[Colby Alexander] did well getting that early lead, he went with the pacers," Coscoran told NBC.

"We decided to let him go because it was such a fast pace. Obviously, it paid off for me, holding off a little bit early on in the race, and then chasing him down.

"I think I'm a bit more of a kicker at the end rather than having a consistent pace all round, and it paid off."

Coscoran's time makes him the sixth fastest Irishman ever indoors for the while McCann moves to seventh.
