Bernard Lagat used his devastating late kick to win his fourth 3,000m title in five years Saturday at the US indoor athletics championships.
Lagat clocked 7min 46.01sec, biding his time in the crowded field and surging past Galen Rupp with little more than 100m remaining.
Rupp settled for second in 7:48.19.
Lagat, 39, said the race was the perfect preparation for defending his indoor 3,000m world title in Sopot, Poland, next month.
