BLACK CREEK LONG distance runner Cam Levins has been breaking Canadian records at indoor meets this year.

Black Creek track star Cam Levins set another national record this winter on the indoor track.

The 2012 Olympian finished second in the 2,000m at the 107th Millrose Games in New York on Feb. 15. His time of 4:53.35 is the fastest at that distance in Canadian history, although, there is no official record kept for the 2,000m in Canada.

The New York Road Runners hosted some of the best runners in the country at the Games, held at Washington Heights Armory in Manhattan.

On Jan. 16, Levins smashed yet another Canadian record  at the Boston University Multi-Event meet. He ran the 25-lap, 5,000m indoor race in 13:19.6, breaking Jason Bunston’s record of 13:25.87 set 17 years ago in Stockholm, Sweden.

Levins, a Southern Utah graduate, trains in Portland. His Nike Project teammate, Olympic medallist Galen Rupp, won the Boston race in a U.S. record of 13:01.26.

Levins is gearing up for the 3,000m race at the world indoor championships, March 7-9 in Sopot, Poland.
