STAMFORD, Conn. – Feb. 8, 2024 – Christian Coleman, Yared Nuguse, Raevyn Rogers, and Andre De Grasse headline NBC Sports’ live coverage of the 116th Millrose Games from New York City, this Sunday, Feb. 11, at 1 p.m. ET on NBC and Peacock. The iconic meet, held at The Armory in Manhattan since 2012, doubles as a stop on the World Athletics Indoor Tour Gold.
The meet’s premiere events, the NYRR Wanamaker Miles, could potentially see an indoor world record fall in the men’s race as U.S. mile record-holder and defending Millrose mile champion Yared Nuguse looks to break the vaunted time of 3:47.01 set by Olympian Yomif Kejelcha (Ethiopia) in 2019. Nuguse had a historic 2023 season, breaking Alan Webb’s 16-year-old U.S. mile record at the Prefontaine Classic in September (3:43.97), good for fourth on the all-time outdoor mile list, while also breaking the U.S. indoor mile record at last year’s Millrose Games (3:47.38).
Expected to line up next to Nuguse will be training partner and two-time World Championship finalist Mario Garcia Romo (Spain) and rising U.S. middle distance star Hobbs Kessler, coming off a win in the 1500m at last week’s New Balance Indoor Grand Prix.
Additionally, the men’s indoor two-mile world record of 8:03.40, set by four-time Olympic champion Mo Farah (Great Britain) in 2015, will also be targeted on Sunday, as reigning 1500m world champion Josh Kerr (Great Britain) and U.S. 5,000m/10,000m record holder Grant Fisher lead a competitive field going after the historic time.
Sunday’s meet will also include matchups such as 2019 100m world champion Christian Coleman and six-time Olympic medalist Andre De Grasse (Canada) facing off in the 60m as well as Tokyo Olympic 1500m silver medalist Laura Muir (Great Britain) battling North American 5,000m/10,000m record holder Alicia Monson in the two-mile.
Other notable athletes expected to compete on Sunday include Tokyo Olympic 800m bronze medalist Raevyn Rogers, two-time 100m hurdles world champion Danielle Williams (Jamaica), 2016 Rio Olympic 100m hurdles silver medalist Nia Ali, Tokyo Olympic pole vault silver medalist Chris Nilsen, and Tokyo 1500m Olympian Elle St. Purrier aiming for her third Millrose mile title.
NBC Sports’ Paul Swangard will call the event, joined by four-time Olympic medalist Ato Boldon, four-time Olympic gold medalist Sanya Richards-Ross, and two-time Olympian Kara Goucher. Lewis Johnson will serve as reporter.
