STC Elite’s Tomas Cotter picked up two victories in his official 2015 indoor debut Saturday in Lincoln, Nebraska, at the Prairie Wolf Invitational.
Cotter opened up the day with a new personal best of 14:36.21 in the 5000m to win by a margin of 27 seconds. Then he dropped down to win the 800m in 1:55.65.
Cotter said, “I was very happy with both races as I’ve never attempted a rare double like that before and I’ve only had two track workouts since the Intersquad Meet on December 5th. I’m stronger than I’ve ever been and I’m still building towards outdoors!”
Cotter hopes to run a few more indoor races before making a serious run at making the World Outdoor Championships for his country of Ireland in the 3000m steeplechase.
