Maryland junior sprinter Kameron Jones placed third in the 600-meter race at the Toyota USA Track & Field Indoor Championships at the Ocean Breeze Athletic Complex in New York City on Sunday.
Jones ran 1:15.32, obliterating the Maryland record 1:16.76, which he set last year at the Spire NCAA D-1 Indoor Track & Field Classic, and finishing behind a new world record 1:13.77, set by professional runner Donavan Brazier.
Jones now owns three University of Maryland records. In the outdoor season, he will compete in the 4x400m relay and the 400m dash.
