Mariano Garcia of Spain will be chasing his third World Indoor Tour victory after winning in Staten Island with a world-leading time of 1:45.12 and Liévin in 1:46.29, both ahead of Great Britain’s Elliot Giles. Garcia will restart his competition with Giles, who won two races on the circuit in 1:46.78 and 1:45.42 in Karlsruhe and Torun, respectively, and placed second in Birmingham behind Collins Kipruto, who achieved his indoor PB of 1:45.39 in the Muller Indoor Grand Prix. Andreas Kramer of Sweden, who set the Swedish indoor record of 1:45.09 in Torun last year, and Michael Saruni of Kenya, who posted the third fastest indoor time in history with a mark of 1:43.95 in Tucson 2018, round out the field.

Mariano Garcia: “My friend Alvaro De Arriba took the win at the Spanish Championships and I want to get revenge tomorrow, and put on a good show. I have not thought the race tactics yet, but I guess the plan is to win, although anything can happen in the 800m”.
