Extended results of the historic 5,000m race which took place at the 2022 Boston University David Hemery Valentine Invitational over the weekend and produced an American indoor record. The meet was hosted by Boston University at the Track and Tennis Center.

The two-day meeting generated a lot of highlights and excitement, but a lot of focus was on the men’s 5k and it didn’t disappoint as Olympic finalist Grant Fisher of the Nike Bowerman TC opened his 2022 campaign in a remarkable fashion Saturday night.

The 24-year-old clocked 12:53.73 to shave off more than seven seconds off the previous American indoor record in the 5000m, an event that produced 17 of the top 20 fastest times in the world this season. The former American indoor record was 13:01.26, set in 2014 at Boston by Galen Rupp, who has now slipped outside of the all-time top 10 list.

With his winning performance, Fisher now moves up to the No. 5 spot on the all-time world performer indoor list behind the world record of 12:49.60 set by Ethiopian legendary Kenenisa Bekele, fellow countryman legend Haile Gebrselassie (12:50.38), as well as standout Kenyans Daniel Komen (12:51.48), and Isiah Koech (12:53.29).

Fisher also came close to bettering the best time ever by an American indoors or outdoors of12:53.60 set by Bernard Lagat at Monaco in July 2011.
