Kenyan-born turn American citizen Bernard Lagat won his third consecutive race at the 20th Meeting Pas de Calais in Lievin, France, last night.

He won the event in a time of 3:51.34, which is the 9th fastest time ever posted indoors.

Lagat had stiff competition as home favorite Frenchman Mehdi Baala, the 2006 European Championships 1500m champion made it difficult for the American.

Baala was maybe ‘inexperienced’ in the event as it was his first ever mile race, but was impressive clocking 3:52.51 on his debut, which is a new a French indoor record.

Bernard Lagat personal best in the mile is 3:49.89 by the way.
