On Sunday in Boston, 23-year-old Casimir Loxsom broke the indoor 600-meter record he had set at a college meet in Albuquerque earlier this year. He broke his previous record of 1:15.58 with a time of 1:15.33 and won the USA Indoor Track & Field Championship.

“The title means a lot more than the time to me,” Loxsom, a former Penn State athlete, told the AP. “I’ve never won a U.S. title before. I always seem to find a way to second place out of a potential victory.”

According to Flotrack, Loxsom joined the Brooks Beasts Track Club after finishing his collegiate career at Penn State.
