Centrowitz is first American man to win 1500m title at worlds

Matthew Centrowitz (Broadneck) won the 1,500-meter final at the world indoor track and field championships on Sunday in Portland, Ore. Centrowitz celebrated his victory by pointing to the USA emblazoned across his jersey. He became the first American man to win the 1,500 with a final-lap surge that pulled him in front of silver medalist Jakup Holusa of the Czech Republic. New Zealand's Nicholas Willis poured it on down the stretch to finish with the bronze. "Now it's time to go get an Olympic medal," Centrowitz said. On the women's side, high school senior Vashti Cunningham, daughter of former NFL quarterback Randall Cunningham, became the youngest high jump champion ever. The gold-medal winning clearance of 6 feet, 5 inches is the latest honor in the stunning rise of the 18-year-old Cunningham, who set the American high school record in the event at the U.S. indoor championship last weekend. Randall Cunningham, who is also his daughter's coach, leapt to his feet when she was pronounced the winner at the Portland Convention Center. The United States finished the event with a record 23 medals, including 13 golds, in a championship that didn't include Russia, which was absent because of pending doping charges. The U.S. also won both the men's and women's 4x400 relay.
