3:46.91 American Record
Alan Webb breaks the American record for the mile, running 3:46.91 to eclipse Steve Scott's 25-year-old mark. Webb becomes the 8th fastest miler of all-time. His 3:46.91 is the fastest mile run since 2001. In a post-race interview, Webb stated that this brought him "one step closer" to the 3:43 world record of Hicham El Guerrouj.
5 weeks till World Championships.
No television coverage.
This is a Sandy, Baby exclusive.
Nothing on espn.com. Nothing on washpost.com. Too busy covering Kobe's whining or Vick's legal trouble.
The race itself is on flocast/track at http://www.flocasts.com/flotrack/coverage.php?c=69&id=4440
