BOSTON (AP) -- Natasha Hastings broke the U.S. women's 300-meter indoor record in the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix on Sunday, finishing in 36.25 seconds at the Reggie Lewis Center.
Hastings, a member of the winning U.S. 1,600 relay team in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, topped the mark of 36.33 set by Allyson Felix in 2007 in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
"I really did not come into this race with any expectations," Hastings said. "I didn't even have a time in mind. I just wanted to go out and execute a sound race."
