In the Jesse Loubier Memorial 300m, rising young star Noah Lyles won emphatically in a massive personal best and meet record of 32.47 seconds. Olympic silver medalist Hellen Obiri of Kenya won a thrilling women's 3000m ahead of reigning world indoor 1500m champion Sifan Hassan of the Netherlands and American 1500m record-holder Shannon Rowbury.

In a battle of Olympic Champions, 2016 Olympic pole vault gold medalist Ekaterini Stefanidi won over 2012 Olympic gold medalist Jenn Suhr with a clearance of 4.63m.

The highlight of the meet came in the women's distance medley when a loaded quartet featuring Olympic bronze medalist Emma Coburn, high school phenom Sydney McLaughlin, World Championships bronze medalist Brenda Martinez and Olympic bronze medalist Jenny Simpson smashed the world record with a final time of 10:40.31, besting the previous mark set at the 2014 New Balance Indoor Grand Prix.
