Watertown runner Austin Lin continues to turn in amazing times during the indoor track season.
After running the seventh fastest 400 meters in the nation earlier this year, he ran the 600 in a school record time at the MSTCA Elite Meet/Coaches Invitational on Sunday at the Reggie Lewis Track and Athletic Center in Boston.
The time of 1:23.02 placed Lin fourth in the event which features many of the best high school track and field athletes in Massachusetts. The WHS junior broke a mark that stood for 40 years, according to a report on the Wicked Local Watertown.
