Scott breaks national indoor 3 000m record
Dominique Scott continued to build on her steady progress, opening her 2017 campaign with a cracking performance in the women’s 3 000m race at the IAAF World Indoor Tour meeting in Boston at the weekend.
The 24-year-old athlete, based in the United States, clocked 8:54.06 to take fifth place in a contest won by Kenyan Hellen Obiri in 8:39.08.
Scott, who competed in the 10 000m race at last year’s Rio Olympics, chopped more than a second off her previous national best of 8:55.19, which she had set in Fayetteville in March last year.
