Joseph Deng breaks national indoor record

Joseph Deng breaks national indoor record at Muller Indoor Grand Prix in Birmingham.

Victorian Institute of Sport’s Joseph Deng has won the 800m Muller Indoor Grand Prix, with a National record-breaking time of 1:47.27.

Having never previously raced indoors, the 20-year-old Deng showed class and poise beyond his years to win the 800m event, which saw two runners fall shortly after the start. Deng went in to the front early and claimed first place, breaking the National record which had been set by Ryan Foster back in 2010.

Ryan Gregson finished 6th at the Birmingham Indoor Grand Prix 1500m with a time of 3:37.52, as well as finishing 3rd in the AIT International Grand Prix Indoor Mile with a time of 3:36.52. Jordy Williamz placed 4th in the 800m (1:48.38) at the AIT International Grand Prix.
