Gabriele Grunewald sixth at NBIGP two-mile in Boston


Team USA Minnesota’s Gabriele Grunewald, of Perham, raced in the two-mile at the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix in Boston Saturday afternoon.

The race had a strange ending between American Jenny Simpson and Kenyan Sally Kipyego.

Simpson was closing on Kipyego with a lap and a half to go and passed Kipyego at the last lap bell, where Simpson pulled up thinking the race was over and slowed allowing Kipyego to pass and sprint to victory.
