The New Balance Indoor Grand Prix will be held on 7 February in Boston and will mark a milestone for the careers of Meseret Defar and Bernard Lagat.
This IAAF Indoor Permit meeting will be two-time Olympic champion Defar’s first time competing since the birth of her daughter in June. Her last race was at the 2013 Great North Run where she set a half-marathon PB of 1:06:09, but in Boston she will be competing at the other end of the distance spectrum when she lines up for the 2000m.
“It is perfect that I am running my first race since childbirth in Boston,” said the four-time world indoor 3000m champion. “I always feel so comfortable and welcome in the city and at the track, and of course I have not forgotten setting a world best there. I am eager to show my fans there that Meseret is back!”
In 2008, the 31-year-old set a world best over two miles in Boston, clocking 9:10.50. She still holds the outdoor world best for the distance at 8:58.58 as well as the world indoor 5000m record of 14:24.37.
Her indoor 2000m PB of 5:34.74 was recorded en route to her 8:30.72 indoor 3000m clocking in 2006, but was just four seconds shy of the world indoor 2000m record of 5:30.53 set by Gabriela Szabo in 1998. Defar will face strong competition from 24-year-old Emma Coburn, who went on to break the US steeplechase record with 9:11.42.
