    New York City, USA – Adam Nelson set a Madison Square Garden record in the Shot Put and Bernard Lagat moved closer to another one with a win in the Wanamaker Mile to highlight the 101st Millrose Games on Friday night (1 Feb).

    Nelson won the Shot Put with a world-leading toss of 22.07m to eclipse the Madison Square Garden record of 21.88m set by Christian Cantwell in 2007. The effort also moved Nelson into third on the all-time U.S. indoor list on the third stop of the five-event USA Track & Field Visa Championship Series.

    Cantwell finished second at 21.33m and reigning World championReese Hoffa was third at 21.13 in a competition in the center of the track amid blaring rock music.

    In the Wanamaker Mile in the meet’s finale, Lagat out dueled Australia’s Craig Mottram to win 3:57.51 to 3:57.90 for his sixth Wanamaker title to move closer to Irishman’s Eammon Coghlan’s all-time record of seven.
