Middle-distance runner Dominique Scott-Efurd broke another national indoor record, while Derrick Mokaleng and Carina Horn also smashed South African sprint marks, as local athletes continued to build on their fine early-season form this week. 

Scott-Efurd crossed the line in fourth position in the  1 500m Women race at the fourth leg of the IAAF World Indoor Tour Series in Boston, USA on Saturday evening, covering the distance in 4:07.25*. 

She took a massive chunk off her own previous mark of 4:10.90 which she had set in New York in February last year. 

On Friday night, Mokaleng broke new ground by crossing the line in 45.76* to win a collegiate 400m race in Lubbock, USA. 

The 20-year-old athlete broke his own national standard of 46.25 which he had clocked in Albuquerque last month. 

On Thursday, Horn stormed across the line in second position in 7.10* in the 60m Women race at a meeting in Eaubonne, France. 

After knocking on the door the last few years, Horn shattered the 19-year-old national record of 7.15 which had been held by Wendy Hartman.
