St. Lucia’s top middle-distance runner Marbeq Edgar has broken the men’s national 800 metres record which stood for 18 years.

Representing Texas-based Wiley College, at the Tom Tellez Invitational yesterday, Edgar won the two-lap event in one minute, 47.83 seconds, erasing the 1:48.9 national record set by Miguel Lambert in 1999.

In the process, Edgar also shattered the meet record.

At the same US meet, the Choiseul native was a member of his school’s victorious 4x400m relay team, which produced a meet record of 3:09.35.
