Coscoran Breaks 5000m Indoor Record

ByEmma Porter |

Andrew Coscoran (Star of the Sea A.C.) broke the Irish Indoor 5000m record overnight in America.

Competing at the BU John Thomas Terrier Classic in Boston, the 27-year-old Dubliner clocked a time of 13.12.56, to finish seventh in a race won by South African Adriaan Wildschutt in 12.56.76.

The performance takes over four seconds off the previous record that his training partner Brian Fay had also set in Boston in December 2022.

Last year Coscoran, who is coached by Feidhlim Kelly, broke the Irish 1500m indoor and outdoor records.

Fay was also in action in the same race and finished tenth in 13.17.21.
