Minors delighted with podium in Boston
Dage Minors said he was thrilled with his start to his season with a podium finish at the John Terrier Classic at Boston University last weekend.
The middle-distance runner came second in the 800 metres in a time of 1min 48.98sec at the indoor meet to start the new year off on a strong note.
“It was my first race on the track since the beginning of August and it was a good indication of how my training has been during the off-season,” Minors said. “I didn’t really have any expectations. I knew I was going in kind of blind and would just react depending on how the race would play out.”
Dylan Capwell, of Atlanta Track Club, won the race in 1:48.19 with team-mate Edward Kemboi rounding off the podium in 1:49.37.
Minors was one of two Bermudians competing at the event. Lamont Marshall broke the national indoor 5,000 metres record for a fifth time.
Chasing his own record of 14:22.19, set at the same event last year, Marshall finished seventh in 14:16.67. “Since I was a youth, Lamont has been consistently putting in the work,” Minors said. “His commitment and drive is exemplary and should be praised.”
