Wins don’t always come easy, especially when the competition is at its stiffest. A few weeks ago at the Yale Track Classic, Pennsylvania’s Tony Russell claimed the individual prize.

History repeated itself on Saturday night at the Reggie Lewis Track Center in Boston where Russell added another important triumph to his strong winter campaign by taking the Junior Mile of the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix.
Tony Russell realized the first part of his vision for the 2014 indoor season on the biggest of stages.
