Yared Nuguse of the United States, who ran the second fastest indoor mile in history at New York’s Millrose Games on February 11, maintained his scintillating form at Madrid’s Gallur Municipal Sports Complex with victory in the concluding men’s 1500 metres in a meeting record of 3min 33.69sec.

The 23-year-old from Louisville, Kentucky, who clocked a North American record of 3:47.38 in New York, finished clear of home runners Mohamed Katir, the world bronze medallist, and Adel Mechaal, who were second and third in 3:34.32 and 3:34.82 respectively.

Katir, who took six seconds off the European indoor 3,000m record in Lievin on February 15, decided to move down in distance at the penultimate World Athletics Indoor Tour Gold meeting of the season, and was rewarded with a personal best, as was his compatriot.

Daniel Roberts moved to within one hundredth of a second of his United States friend and rival Grant Holloway, the double world champion, at the top of this season’s men’s 60m hurdles world list as he won in a personal best of 7.39sec.

Cuba’s Roger Iribarne also set a personal best of 7.48 in second place.

Finland’s in-form women’s 60m hurdler Reeta Hurske, who had been joint second with Switzerland’s Ditaji Kambundji on this season’s world list with 7.81sec, moved to second in her own right as she won in a meeting record 7.79, just 0.01 shy of the time set by Poland’s Pia Skrzyszowska, who has sadly had to finish her indoor season with a hamstring injury.

Hurske defeated two high-profile talents in the form of France’s world indoor champion Cyrena Samba-Mayela, who clocked 7.84, and the Dutch European champion Nadine Visser, who finished third in 7.86.

Norway’s Mette Graversgaard, who had set a national record of 8.01 in her semi-final, lowered that to 8.00 in finishing fourth.

Sarah Lavin of Ireland, fifth in 8.02, had set a personal best of 7.95 in her semi-final.

Home 800m runner Saul Ordonez, the world indoor bronze medallist, followed up his defeat of world indoor and European champion Mariano Garcia, the man who mimes revving up a motorbike before his races, at the weekend’s national championships with another victory.

Ordonez won in 1:46.22 from Sweden’s Andreas Kramer, who clocked 1:46.52, with Garcia apparently requiring a visit to the mechanic after finishing seventh in 1:48.56.

Ireland’s European bronze medallist Mark English won the B final in 1:46.57.

Greece’s Olympic men’s long jump champion Miltiádis Tentóglou, who set a 2023 world-leading mark of 8.41m in Lievin last week, won by the narrowest of margins after he and Cuba’s Tokyo 2020 bronze medallist Maykel Masso had managed 8.15m.

Tentóglou, whose earlier 2023 world lead of 8.40m set in Torun was annulled due to spikes that infringed regulations - and have since been put up for auction to raise funds for victims of the Turkish and Syrian earthquakes, earned victory by virtue of a better second-best jump - 8.07m to 7.98m.

In the women’s 60m Aminatou Seyni of Niger, who had equalled the meeting record of 7.11 in her semi-final, won in 7.08, equal sixth fastest this season.

The women’s shot put turned into a mighty contest as Canada’s Sarah Mitton, whose leading mark of the season, 19.80m, was overtaken by the 20.03 recorded in New York on February 11 by United States world champion Chase Ealey, re-asserted herself by winning with a meeting record of 19.76m.

Ealey was second on 19.64m, with world bronze medallist and European champion Jessica Schilder of The Netherlands third thanks to a season’s best of 19.25m.

Home fans had a victory to savour in the men’s 400m, where European indoor champion Oscar Husillos, who set a national indoor record of 45.58 in the same arena on Sunday (February 19), finished clear of the field in 45.84.

Liadagmis Povea maintained her winning momentum in the women’s triple jump after Gold meeting victories in Karlsruhe and Lievin as she again beat her Cuban compatriot Leyanis Perez Hernandez into second place with a best of 14.65m, 16 centimetres short of the mark with which she currently leads this season’s world list.

Perez reached 14.50, with Portugal’s Tokyo 2020 silver medallist Patricia Mamona third on 13.98.

Canada’s 2018 Commonwealth champion Alysha Newman won the women's pole vault with 4.65m.
