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.

Good scoop! You would think that one of the oldest sports in the world would get more coverage, especially record-breaking times, in major news outlets.
