VA Indoor Week #5 Coverage: Holston 47.90 400 @ Montgomery, Mostrag 4:17 1600 @ FUMA Brandon Miles Jan 13, 2007

Sean Holston did it again at the Prince George County Sports and Learning Complex with his third US#1 performance in his third different event with a personal best 47.90 clocking in the 400 meter dash at Saturday\'s Montgomery Invitational in Landover, Maryland. Holston already owns the US#1 times for 300 (33.99) and 500 (1:03.94) meters as all three nation\'s best times were posted on the same track at Prince George. However, his national leading time was short lived as Chris Ward of Florida (47.42) and Curtis Bilbrew of Alabama (47.68) posted faster times on a much faster and banked track found at the University of Arkansas on Saturday. Axel Mostrag\'s 4:17.76 1600 meter time at the FUMA Invite has to be the best 1600 or mile performance in nation disregarding times based on the fact that Mostrag ran his time on the 160 meter unbanked track at the Estes Athletic Center. His time broke the meet record of 4:19.96 held by a former great high school, collegiate, and post-collegiate miler in Sencca Lassiter. More to come from Montgomery, Fork Union, and CNU.
