Germany’s mammoth entry list for Linz online
Germany is sending nearly 900 athletes to the second World Masters Indoor Championships, starting the Ides of March in Linz, Austria. That’s nearly a third of all athletes entered at Linz. German-American Phil Raschker shared a roster PDF detailing the German entrants and their events — from W35 Urte Alisch to M90s Anton Polgar and Albert Olbrechts. Five W80 Germans are entered as well. Notable on the list: 31 athetes who claim doctorates (I count 31 with “Dr.” in front of their name.) They might not all be physicians, but it seems advisable to learn how to say, “Is there a doctor in the house?” in German. Danke, Phil!
