Donnie Cowart is currently in Indianapolis, Indiana to compete in two American Milers Series meets. The first meet was Saturday night, where Coward ran the 1500m. Cowart was patient and stayed towards the back of the pack until the last lap. Down the back he made a big move to gap the group, but ran out of ground to catch the winner. Donnie finished second in a time of 3:41.96, hitting the US Olympic Trials ‘B’ standard and setting an outdoor PR. Cowart will race again on the 13th in the 3000m Steeplechase where he will be chasing the Olympic ‘A’ standard of 8:23. Video and results can be found below.
